The 2017 CFE/Save the Sound Annual Meeting is shaping up to be one of our most exciting member events this year! With special guest Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s EPA Administrator, headlining this year’s program, seats are filling up quick. In addition to voting in the annual Board election, guests will have the chance to meet Bill Lucey, Save the Sound’s newly appointed Soundkeeper, and mingle with the staff and board of CFE/Save the Sound while enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres, beer, and wine. The board will also present a special tribute to outgoing president, Don Strait, which you won’t want to miss!
Gina McCarthy will deliver a talk on “Protecting Public Health & the Environment in Times of Uncertainty.” Plus we’ll discuss efforts for the conservation of Plum Island, plans for the Soundkeeper program, Curt Johnson’s new role as CFE/Save the Sound’s incoming president, and much more!
The event is free for members, $25 for non-members, with that $25 contribution earning you a year-long membership. Seating is limited, so RSVP today!
