Update 10/31/18: Thank you! We had such a great road trip across Vermont this summer and fall, visiting all 14 counties, meeting and talking with Vermonters about what's important to them and how VPR can serve our community better. Check back soon for a report out on what we've learned and our plans for the future. If you didn't get to attend an event in person, you are always welcome to reach out with your ideas.

Original Post: VPR is hitting the road to visit all 14 counties of Vermont through October 2018. You’ll get to meet Scott Finn, VPR’s new president and CEO, as well as reporters, hosts and staff at community events statewide.
We can't fulfill our vision to explore the whole Vermont story without you. What should people know about where you live? What issues are important to you? And how can VPR serve your community better?
