Rutland Economic Development Corporation is excited to be hosting our 82nd annual meeting and celebration. This will be our best annual meeting yet with our wonderful partners, The MINT - Rutland's Makerspace. This year's annual meeting is a chance to gather, network, tour the space, and support the makerspace. Join us for a chance to see the hard work of the all-volunteer MINT operations team in creating a maker community for entrepreneurs, hobbyists, DIY-enthusiasts, educators, students, non-profit, and for-profit companies. Throughout the evening you will have the chance to see a showcase of products, projects, and creations that have been made in The MINT since it's opening. The most exciting part? You'll have a chance to enter into a silent auction for many of these items, from coffee tables to MINT class vouchers to experience making for yourself.
Heavy appetizers and unique networking opportunities will take place throughout the various shops that make up The MINT from the metal shop to the rapid prototyping lab. Following networking and touring the space, REDC will cover the business portion of the evening with elections, annual reports, and awards. The MINT will also be giving an update on their busy year and their upcoming plans for the workshops, classes, and OnRamp entrepreneurs. You might even go home with a new handmade creation for your home or holiday gift ideas. We hope you will join us in celebrating the business community of Rutland County.
