Additionally, the VISTA member may be asked to participate in the Select USA Investment Summit which occurs annually in Washington DC.

The VISTA will gather information for the database, determine what resources need to be updated or added, and develop a tracking system to ensure an accurate count of organizations who receive services. Identifying underrepresented rural and Tribal communities in Montana to better understand certain areas of the state will be crucial. The VISTA will research capacity building opportunities through existing partnerships and by cultivating new ones.
