Community Issues Bootcamp

Community Issues Bootcamp Overview

The Vail Valley Partnership is pleased to introduce Community Issues Bootcamp, an opportunity to dive deep with likeminded professionals into eight different issues that are defining the future of Eagle County.

The Vail Valley Partnership has made a commitment to the quality of Eagle County’s future. We are pleased to offer this as a part of Vail Valley Works, the premier local program for establishing, training, and supporting a network of aware and knowledgeable citizens ready to take on the challenges of an ever-changing community.



Whether you chose to work here to 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 that are afforded you here.  However, as with any great place, there are underlying issues that we can all learn more about with the goal of coming together around solutions.

At Vail Valley Partnership we believe in creating change and supporting innovation and that it will begin 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.
