Burlington, VT – Vermont Business for Social Responsibility (VBSR) members and forward thinking business professionals are invited to attend the next VBSR Networking Get-Together on May 1, Co-hosted by Small Dog Electronics and Green Mountain Power (GMP). The event, held from 5:30 to 7:30, will feature networking, great food and drink, tours of GMP’s Energy Innovation Center and a celebration of the Small Dog Electronics Rutland store’s one-year anniversary.
The evening will begin at GMP’s Energy Innovation Center with a cash bar, networking and a chance to learn more about the new Energy Innovation Center. After experiencing how the space helps GMP to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of energy use, attendees will move next door to Small Dog’s retail location to toast the store’s one-year anniversary, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and learn what SR practices are being carried out by the company.
“We’re putting together a unique event,” noted VBSR Communications and Development Manager Scott Buckingham. “Rutland has been reinventing itself and is doing a great job of embracing not only new development, but sustainable business practices.” Buckingham credited the resurgence as the reason the VBSR Get-Together will be held at two locations. “With so many creative things going on Rutland, we felt we had to showcase more than one business; more than one story.”
The Networking Get-Together is free to attend and open to anyone interested in the triple bottom line approach to business. To learn more about the event, register to attend, or join Go!
