The Vermont Business Roundtable’s issue and policy analyses are conducted by its various working groups, which are headed by a chief executive and include other CEOs as its members. The working groups conduct studies, develop policy recommendations, and design implementation strategies for action.
On major issues, the working groups develop position statements as a basis for member advocacy, for educational and informational purposes, and for use by the general public. Working groups are created and disbanded as issues arise and action is taken. Currently, there is a working group dedicated to Health Care and task forces focusing on Economic Development and Education respectively.
At other times, the Roundtable will commission a particular study by consultants that augment the initial work by its own members. As well, the Roundtable will enter into collaborations with other entities to bring their respective talents, expertise, and resources to bear on the issue.
