Course Description: Whether you live, work or just play in Eagle County, you’ve made a conscious choice to do so thanks to the incredible quality of life and opportunities available here. However (as with any great place,) there are underlying issues that we can all explore with the goal of coming together around solutions. We believe the way through these issues is together, with our friends and neighbors who are experiencing similar struggles but know the benefit of collaborating for solutions.
At Vail Valley Partnership we believe in creating change and supporting innovation. That begins with a firm commitment to seriously analyze our challenges and to identify, educate, train, and support our business leaders to shed a light on those issues. We’re making the commitment develop the intelligent, creative, and energetic local leadership network that is essential for the community to achieve its full potential. Community Issues Bootcamp is an opportunity to dive deep into the current issues that are defining the future of Eagle County. Each topic will be led by local and regional experts and features a “takeaway” comprised of information and strategies that you can start to implement immediately around each of these topics. The group will be limited to 20 participants to encourage a focused and comfortable discussion format.
