The Mad River Valley Chamber is planning the next installment of its community conversation series. This one will feature a panel discussion of The Valley's restaurant sector and is scheduled for Monday, January 25, at 6 p.m. (see access information below). The panel will include a group of owners and other stakeholders representing various segments of the local restaurant business.

The purpose is to discuss how the restaurant community has responded to the pandemic crisis, how they are striving to meet the needs of residents and visitors and what the future holds for the sector. The hope is that it will help to share with the community what the restaurants are going through, the challenges, concerns and aspirations for the future. 


"This should be an excellent opportunity for members of the Mad River Valley community to connect with this vital part of our local economy," said chamber executive director Eric Friedman.
