112th Annual Dinner
The Lake Champlain Chamber celebrated its 112th Annual Dinner on Thursday, April 13 with more than 300 attendees at the DoubleTree by Hilton.
The Community Impact award was presented to Dr. Amy Carmola.
Through her role as Chief Impact Officer at United Way of Northwest Vermont, where she has worked for the last 20 years, she has touched thousands of lives and multiple generations. Her impact has been felt in everything the United Way does: Meeting basic needs and leading their housing/homelessness response as a member of the Chittenden County Homeless Alliance Strategic Planning Committee, addressing food insecurity through her work with the Hunger Council; the development of volunteer programs like Neighbor Rides and Foster Grandparents to nurturing; and supporting the strategic growth and expansion of critical programs like United Way’s Working Bridges, which helps working Vermonters keep stable employment and build financial stability for themselves, their families, and their communities. Her dedication to continuous improvement, collective impact and building strategic partnerships has benefited Vermonters in countless ways big and small. Her work is often behind the scenes, supporting others and leading from a place of humility and true compassion.
