2017 Conference to be Held at the UVM Davis Center on June 2

Date: Friday, June 2nd, 2017
Location: UVM Davis Center, 590 Main Street, Burlington, VT

The VEOC's 15th (!) Annual Vermont Employee Ownership Conference has been scheduled for Friday, June 2, and due to excellent attendence last year, we will be moving to a larger venue: the UVM Davis Center!

Keynote: Marjorie Kelly of the Democracy Collaborative

Marjorie KellyWhile our volunteer Education Committee is hard at work developing the program of workshops, we're pleased to announce that Marjorie Kelly has agreed to deliver a keynote on the topic of "Who Owns America"! Ms. Kelly is currently Senior Fellow and Executive Vice President at The Democracy Collaborative, and cofounder of the "50 by 50" initiative, which aims to lay the groundwork for there to be 50 million employee owners in the United States by 2050. She is author of two books (Divine Right of Capital and Owning Our Future), is from a business family (her father started his own business, and her grandfather founded Anderson Tool & Die in Chicago), and founded and was President of Business Ethics Magazine for 20 years. She's been a fan of employee ownership for decades, and is puzzled why everyone else isn’t!

Sponsorship: Annual sponsors are a key source of support for the VEOC's work, and allow us to keep attendence affordable for folks considering walking the employee ownership path and for students whose exposure to employee ownership ideas might set them on track to become an informed and passionate next generation of leaders in the Vermont employee ownership community! If your company or organization would like to join the community of sponsors supporting our work, please email for more information!
