CONGRATULATIONS to our own Karen Ciechanowicz, Director of Operations, on her graduation with the Vermont Leadership Institute (VLI) Class of 2020 after an intensive year as a VLI Fellow. We see Karen’s leadership skills and many talents up close every day, so we are glad this impressive statewide array of leaders had the chance to appreciate and work with her.

A program of The Snelling Center for Government, the Vermont Leadership Institute was founded in 1995, with the goal of stimulating citizen enthusiasm for and participation in public service.

The Snelling Center for Government, established in 1992, is dedicated to fostering responsible and ethical civic leadership, encourage public service by private citizens, and promote informed citizen participation in shaping public policy in Vermont.

We’re all proud of you, Karen!
