OTN September Gathering
Thursday, September 29th
Forest Beach Migratory Preserve
Food! We will have some dinner basics on hand. If you wish to add to the table with something to pass, or drinks of your choice, please do.
Networking time! This is our concept - to give you time to connect with colleagues over food and drink.
One Speaker - Dan Colllins from the League of Conservation Voters will do a short presentation to update us on current and coming legislative issues that affect environmental policy or may impact our efforts in some way.
Shameless Plugs! As always, we will go around so everyone has a chance to give a quick update on their current projects.
RSVP - Please let me know if you are coming - it really helps to plan for food and seating.
