2006 Arthur Gibb Award for Individual LeadershipConnie Snow, the first recipient of the Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership, is a founder and the Executive Director of the Brattleboro Area Community Land Trust. Snow’s work over the last nineteen years includes rehabilitating Brattleboro’s lower Canal Street and the Wilder Building, developing housing options in downtown and villages, and collaborating with human service organizations on “service-enriched” housing for special needs residents. She has earned the trust and respect of Vermonters who seek her wise counsel on making our communities better places to live and work.
“Connie’s work is done face-to-face, day-to-day, and requires much more than a good mind and good organization. It requires trust, an essential element of her success, and one of Art Gibb’s defining traits.”—Liz Bankowski
