Glenmont Exchange

Mission of the Glenmont Exchange

The Glenmont Exchange grew out of the community meetings for the Glenmont Sector Master Plan. Those meetings forged new connections across the community. It was useful that we talked with each other. We exchanged perspectives and insights, enlightening all of us. We created the Glenmont Exchange as a forum where those connections could continue. The name Glenmont Exchange embodies that purpose. The first meeting of the Glenmont Exchange occurred on April 4, 2012.

The Glenmont Sector Plan meetings convened representatives of businesses, homeowners associations, civic associations, and individuals. That diverse collection of perspectives was part of its success in forging new connections. Glenmont Exchange membership welcomes members from that same diverse group of perspectives.

In accordance with its role as an information exchange forum, the Exchange generally avoids taking positions on local issues, except where there is a strong consensus amongst our members. Of course, members (businesses, associations, and individuals) can and do take positions as they wish.
