Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Greater NW Climate Conference – Mar 7 & 8

2015 Greater Pacific Northwest Regional Conference and
Introductory Group Start Workshop

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is creating the political will for a stable climate by empowering individuals to experience breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power.  At the Greater Pacific Northwest Regional Conference, we will gather to learn and grow in our ability to connect with others to forward the goal of meaningful national climate legislation.  Our focus will be on “Connecting with Concerned Harvesters,” those in our region who make their living through fisheries, farms and forests.  By connecting with these groups, we can better engage our local communities in supporting the goal of a stable climate.

You are welcome whether you’ve been in CCL for years, or have never attended a CCL meeting.  Our best people will share their knowledge and experience with you.  There will be an introductory group start workshop for people new to CCL or who have not previously attended one.

For schedule and registration information, go here.

What you need to know:

Who?

Everyone is welcome, whether it’s your first CCL experience or you’re an experienced volunteer.  The Greater Pacific Northwest region includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Hawai’i, but you are welcome no matter where you’re from.

When?

The conference takes place on Saturday March 7 from 8am to 9pm, and Sunday March 8 from 8am to 1pm.  Registration is open now.

Where?

The Northgate Community Center in Seattle will be our conference venue.  This center is within walking distance of the Northgate Park and Ride, and is also easily accessed by public transportation that connects with SeaTac Airport, the Amtrak Station, and the Bolt Bus boarding zone.  Ride-sharing with your CCL buddies is another option, and you’ll reduce your carbon footprint too! If you want help finding a carpool click here to go to our group on CCL Community. See details under lodging for how to connect to Community if you are not already registered.  If you are unable to navigate that process, please contact Tim Fitzgerald at tzfconsultant@gmail.com for help with carpool or lodging issues.

How Much?

The full cost of the conference is $95. The conference fee is not tax-deductible. This includes conference program, materials, catered meals including lunch and dinner on Saturday (and two drinks during our evening entertainment!) and lunch on Sunday. Coffee and tea will also be available throughout the conference.

Attending the conference without sharing in the catered meals is $40. If you choose this option, you will have to bring your own food, as there is no easy access to food near the venue.

If you would like to register by check, please use the promo code “check” and mail your payment to: Citizens Climate Lobby 1330 Orange Ave #300, Coronado, CA 92118

We encourage anyone able to pay a bit more to round it up to $100, to allow for scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to come.  Any surplus at the end of the conference will be donated to Citizens Climate Education.

If the cost is a problem for you, we have scholarships available. We encourage you to raise your funds through your chapter and family and friends, as scholarship funds are limited.  Anyone requiring a scholarship is encouraged to contact Tim Fitzgerald.
