Hello from Vermont!

Spring is in full bloom in the beautiful Green Mountain State. Our skis have long been put away and now the golf clubs are swinging in celebration of the warmer, sunny days. We've just returned from a successful RIMS 2014 Conference in Denver. It was great to see so many of you in our travels and we are grateful for all the companies that continue to choose Vermont as their domicile of choice. Planning is now focused on the 29th Annual VCIA Conference on August 12-14. Registration is open.

Check out our Events Calendar to keep up to date on all of the industry events. And connect with us on LinkedIn for regular industry news.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

All the best,
Dave, Sandy, Dan and the entire Vermont crew!
