Now you all can see what I do in real life. This is one of my projects:
Call for abstracts to the White House’s 2011 GreenGov Symposium, co-presented by ACCO and CEQ. This is a superior opportunity to meet with cabinet, legislators, and industry.
Must have experience marketing and closing exhibitor space and sponsorship packages.
I’m organizing Obama’s GreenGov Symposium, so I require a seasoned veteran. Experienced with the Agencies and FT 500 a must. Green/susty conference experience preferred, but OK if you’ve worked very big conferences.
Email your creds and “GreenGov Project” in the subject line, here. I’ll get back to you.
Humbled to be working on Obama’s GreenGov Symposium!
“CEQ and Association of Climate Change Officers to Co-Sponsor Conference
WASHINGTON, DC –The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) announced today that its second annual GreenGov Symposium, which aims to bring together leaders from government, the private sector, non-profits and academia to identify opportunities to create jobs, grow clean energy industries, and curb pollution by greening the Federal Government, will be held in Washington, DC on October 31 through November 2, 2011. This year’s event will be co-sponsored by CEQ and the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO).
"By enlisting the innovation and expertise both inside and outside the Federal Government, the 2011 GreenGov Symposium will help agencies deliver on President’s Obama’s commitment to save money and reduce waste by increasing energy efficiency and reducing harmful pollution through sustainable practices in government operations," said Nancy Sutley, Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
President Obama signed Executive Order 13514 in October 2009, directing Federal agencies to meet aggressive energy, water, and waste reduction targets, reduce their greenhouse gas pollution, and leverage Federal purchasing power to curb waste, save taxpayer dollars, and support the growth of a 21st century clean energy economy.
"On June 2nd, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) released a draft National Action Plan: Priorities for Managing Freshwater Resources in a Changing Climate to help Federal agencies assure adequate water supplies, safeguard water quality, and protect public health and property. It also outlines ways in which Federal agencies can support state, local and tribal governments in their water resources planning by improving access to quality data and information and best practices. The draft Action Plan will be available for public comment until July 15th. Comments can be submitted online here. The CEQ Press Release can be found here.”
The draft Action Plan identifies specific actions Federal agencies should take, including:
