When: Thursday, Novemeber 5, 11:30-1:30
Where: Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission
               (110 West Canal St., Winooski, VT, 05404 )

We are excited to announce our next ETC Lunch & Learn Event will be held on November 5, at the CCRPC's main conference room. This is a new venue for us, and we are excited to invite you all to join us in Winooski!

At this event, we will debut a new interactive Transportation Demand Management (TDM) tool, which will be a fun way to help ETC members create their own suite of TDM services. We will also hear briefly from Keith Epstein of All Earth Renewables, and Alicia Taylor from CarShare VT, who will also bring a CarShare vehicle for you to check out!

As always, there will be plenty of time to network with fellow ETCs, and of course, a great lunch! We will send out an invitation shortly. Mark your calendars, we hope to see you there!
