VCGI Incorporated no longer exists! After 21 years as a public nonprofit, VCGI has completed the transition back into state government as a division of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. Staff members will complete the physical move to the National Life Building in Montpelier on Friday, April 3 (please don't be surprised if we take a little longer to call or email you back!).
We bid a sad but grateful farewell to our Executive Director of 15 years, David Brotzman, who chose not to make the transition into state employment. David joined VCGI in January of 2000 and maintained a steady course through various political and financial climates until broaching concerns about the sustainability of VCGI's business model several years ago. The VCGI Board of Directors agreed that changes needed to be explored, and in May of 2014, the VT Legislature decreed that VCGI would rejoin state government.
