Plenary Session Conversation - Getting Land Conservation into the Room Where it Happens
Governor Lamont made it clear in his inaugural address that as a fan of Hamilton he is glad to now be in the “room where it happens” and that he would not be “throwing away his shot.” The Governor’s outlook offers a fresh opportunity to discuss your and CLCC’s vision for accelerating the pace of land conservation in Connecticut over the next four years. Bring your questions and ideas to this interactive conversation about getting land conservation into the room where it happens.
Attention Foresters! Certified Forest Practitioner CEU’s have been assigned to the 2019 CLCC Conference.
Bring a certificate of attendance (attached below) to the Conference and CLCC Executive Director Amy B. Paterson will certify your participation at the end of the day. Please make sure to sign the Certified Forest Practitioner's registration form at the Registration table when you check into the conference in the morning. Any questions, please contact Cristina Hayden at email@example.com.
