The Preservation Trust of Vermont and the Vermont Community Development Program is presenting a retreat on historic preservation and community development on July 28-29, 2014 at the Grand Isle Lake House in Grand Isle, Vermont. This retreat is for any nonprofit, for profit, community-supported enterprise, or public facility taking on, or exploring, a building rehabilitation project or a project that strengthens their community. It works best to have 2-4 people represent a project. Attendees will be asked to present a 10-minute case study about their project that frames a situation or problem that once solved will move that project forward. All retreats begin at 3:00 and end after lunch the following day. The cost for overnight, dinner and breakfast is $75/person for a shared room or $95 for a single. Space is limited to around 20 participants with a limited number of single rooms, so reservations should be made as early as possible. The deadline to register is July 21. Register online today!
