“PC is so proud to be a sponsor of the Vermont Development Conference – as we have been since its inception. I go to connect and discuss current issues, but the conversation doesn’t end with the conference. The network connections I’ve made at the VDC include people I call upon as we navigate this ever-changing world of commercial development and construction. Thank you to White and Burke for bringing this high-quality platform to Vermont every year.”

As a long-time attendee, a past panelist, and a repeat sponsor, I am once again pleased to support and participate in the Vermont Development Conference.  It’s really the only opportunity in our state for industry professionals including developers, builders, architects, engineers, lawyers, etc. to meet in one place to discuss both the challenges and opportunities in our areas of expertise.  We often lament the many hurdles that we encounter on projects; here is an opportunity to learn, contribute and effect change in our industry.
