New Health Insurance Offerings

One of the most valuable benefits that our Chamber offers our members is access to voluntary employee dental and vision insurance.  These rates are extremely competitive in the Vermont marketplace (see 2022 premiums below) and are an ideal solution insurance coverage for small business owners and their employees.  I encourage all our business to review and consider these options.  These rates are only available for businesses that are members in good standing of a local Chamber of Commerce in Vermont, and who are actively in business.

Childcare In the Upper Valley: Challenges, Successes, and the Way Forward

Upper Valley employers and families both name access to high-quality, affordable childcare as one of the key barriers to prosperity in our region, especially for low- and moderate-income families. How can we increase childcare access and affordability in the Upper Valley so our families and workplaces can thrive?

That topic will be explored in depth in a free, public, two-part virtual symposium for employers, policymakers, providers, parents, and others.

Hosted by Vital Communities in partnership with the Corporate Council, Municipal Leaders, the Early Care and Education Association of the Upper Valley, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the Couch Family Foundation.
