We've all seen the substantial havoc and destruction of hurricanes, droughts and wildfires across the United States. The 2016 Ellicott City flood and ongoing nuisance flooding throughout the eastern shore is a call for Maryland leaders to institutionalize climate change into decision-making in local/state government and critical infrastructure sectors.
On May 21, participants will discuss a vision for the nation's first statewide climate academy, a joint venture between the State of Maryland and the Association of Climate Change Officers.
Additionally, the meeting hosts will present a vision for establishing a collaborative network of local/state government and infrastructure sector leaders focused upon knowledge exchange, cohort learning and resource sharing.
This portion of the State of the Coast Conference is an invitation only meeting. To inquire about attendance, please email dkreeger@ClimateOfficers.org.
