NAMI Vermont’s Annual Business Meeting will be on Saturday, November 5th from 10 a.m.-1:00p.m. via Zoom. Our agenda includes a meet and greet at 9:30 am and we’ll start the meeting promptly at 10:00 am – ending at 1:00 pm. We are very pleased to welcome Ken Duckworth, MD – Chief Medical Officer of NAMI as our keynote speaker. Dr. Duckworth will discuss his new book, You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health, which provides an essential resource for individuals and families seeking expert guidance on diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. This comprehensive guide includes stories from over 130 people who have been there — including people with mental illness and caregivers — and understand how challenging it can be to find the help you need, when you need it. Their stories are what makes this book different from your typical mental health guide.
Voting for the slate of candidates for the Board of Directors will be done through a secure online method before and during the meeting. Members will vote on the slate of candidates that includes:
- Phil Blackburn, Brattleboro, VT (3rd Term)
- Ann Cummins, Ludlow, VT (3rd Term)

- Jodi Girouard, South Burlington, VT (1st Term)
- Maria McClellan, Shelburne, VT (1st Term)
- Claudia Pringles, Montpelier, VT (1st Term)

We will celebrate the amazing work and dedication of our volunteers and hear about a year in review from our Committee Chairs.
We look forward to seeing you virtually on November 5th!
