Event Recap

Presenters and panelists brought spot-on, relevant, innovative, and eye-opening content to this conversation. Our sponsors stood up to say that this is an important issue and not only fund it forward but to be recognized as a leader in the dialogue as we craft it together. Thank you to all attendees for your interest and unique and diverse contribution. We had attendees from 10 different states and Canada! Finally, to our members, who started down this road collectively, just over a year ago, here we are with our first major summit in the history books. Our members' leadership in this space is valued and it is essential. 

 

Remember, the climate conversation is not a foregone conclusion. There is no one side. There are many sides, and we heard from a few divergent viewpoints. There were a handful of tense moments but even more heads nodding and handshakes, and that is why we formed.
