Join GVLT for A Seat at the Table Conversation

A Seat at the Table is a community-wide conversation that starts with you and your neighbors.

On Thursday, October 25th, come together with a representative of GVLT, share a coffee, and talk about your ideas and hopes for Gallatin County. When we come together as a community to listen to and learn from each other, we have the power to impact both neighborhoods and lives. That’s what A Seat at the Table is all about. And we won’t be the only ones having the conversation. Nonprofits and individuals all over the valley will be hosting conversations on the same day.
The goal is for GVLT and other hosts to connect individuals and communities of diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Talking – and more importantly listening – to our neighbors is an important first step toward creating a more unified community as we grow. While our community faces challenges such as growth, we also face so many opportunities – if we can come together.

In this digital age when people are glued to their cellphones, imagine:

One day.

Hundreds of face-to-face conversations about this place that we love.

Relationships built.

Ideas sparked.

Community members engaged.

We know that big ideas can spring from small conversations and that people invest in what they help create. We need your voice at the table.

After A Seat at the Table, GVLT and other hosts will share your input with the organizers who will report themes from the data to the participants and the larger community. We will also provide our local governments with the key findings from the conversations to inform their planning for the future.
