In last month’s issue of the VLCT News, our timeline cruised through the ’80s and ’90s. This month, we revisit Tropical Storm Irene before bringing you to present day at the League. The timeline begins on page 10 of our April newsletter.
The 50th year of VLCT’s service to Vermont’s cities and towns continues! Throughout the year, we will revisit our history and report on news of festivities commemorating the people and the events of VLCT and how local government has helped define our organization during the past 50 years. We have a lot to share, and hope that you will add any memories and accomplishments you have as well. We celebrate all of you who make a difference in local government every day and work to make your communities better, more efficient, and more responsive to their residents. As we move though the year, we will also look ahead to what may be in store for the next 50 years and how can we help local government prepare for innovation, change, and progress. —Maura Carroll, Executive Director, VLCT

VLCT's new Call to Local Service brochure template is a special resource for members to customize and use. Instructions are here. Developed by a team of VLCT staffers as a new way to help League members get more citizens involved in local government, this trifold brochure, laid out in MSWord, is part educational handout, part signup sheet, and all ready to customize with your municipality's details.
Most Vermont employers must comply with Act 69 (21 V.S.A. §§ 481 et seq.), the paid sick leave law that provides for a minimal amount of accrued, paid leave for many employees. For more information, please see:
Please contact MAC with questions about the law and how to make sure your personnel policy is up-to-date. Call or email Jill Muhr, Human Resources Consultant at 800-649-7915 or MAC-HR@vlct.org.
Our mission is to provide local officials with the education, training and professional assistance they need to fulfill their statutory duties.

This YouTube video gives a quick overview of one way we are helping PACIF members' employees get serious about wellness. Studies show that healthy workers are injured less often and recover more quickly than unhealthy ones. In each One-to-One Wellness Consultation, Heidi Joyce spends 30 minutes with a single employee to get a handle on his or her wellness status and develop customized strategies for improving. Members just need to schedule several consultations for a single day so Heidi can share her know-how and enthusiasm.
