March 2014

Dear ,




Spring is in the air!  Longer days, a sun that actually feels warm... before we know it, we'll be seeing red-winged black birds and perhaps a green shoot or two.  It may be too soon to get out the swimsuit but it's not too early to encourage your employees to start thinking about their commute once the weather warms up. Walking, biking, or taking the bus to work on a fresh spring day can't be beat! 




 Spring Lunch and Learn

Please join us on April 22nd, for our second ETC Network event. We'll be meeting at Champlain College at the  Miller Center, 175 Lakeside Avenue, Burlington, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.  You just need to show up. We'll provide  lunch and beverages along with a program that we hope you'll enjoy. 

For those of you who attended our November meeting, you can see that our network has grown! We hope you'll attend this next meeting for a chance to meet the newcomers and engage in some good conversation! We'll be sending out more information soon, but feel free to register here today.




Additional Upcoming Events and Activities


    2014 Walk/Bike Summit and VT Bike Expo 



To get a head start on the topics of walking and biking, consider attending the 2014 Walk/Bike Summit and Vermont Bike Expo at the Hilton Burlington Hotel the weekend of March 29-30.


Way to Go! Week


If you're looking for a way to entice your employees to try another mode of commuting, check out this year's Way to Go! Week challenge, which runs from May 12 -16th.  Businesses can compete and those employees who participate just need to complete a simple registration form.





Here's another fun challenge you might want to tell your employees about. It runs from March 21st to May 3rd. An article in a May 2013 issue of explains how it works. Player registration begins soon!



Thank you for your enthusiasm and efforts!  If you know of other businesses that might be interested in joining our ETC Network, please tell them to contact:
