tate Environmental Leaders Conference

This year’s State Environmental Leaders Conference is shaping up to be a great event, and we hope you’re planning on attending it! 

Register now to secure a spot for one of the best
best professional development and networking events of the year for state-based environmental advocates.

This will be the 30th Annual Conference! With the Trump Administration withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, slashing EPA funding, and attacking our most important environmental and climate policies, now more than ever we need to come together to share strategies and improve our skills.

Over the past 30 years, this conference has helped more than 200 organizations become stronger and more successful in winning their environmental and conservation campaigns.

This year’s program will be great!  A few highlights include:

  • Keynote by Michael Brune (Sierra Club; Green Group Chair)
  • The Trump Presidency: Year One Report from the States
  • Technology of Movement Building (Wellstone Action)
  • Fundraising Across the Organization (Andy Robinson)
  • Message Strategies in an Age of Polarization (Lori Weigel and David Metz)
