Welcome remarks by: Scott Kitcher, President & CEO, Sustain SoCal

Please join us on Thursday, July 9  for a look at infrastructure resiliency in a world impacted by COVID-19.

Resiliency is more important than ever, but financing and building resilient infrastructure has been thought infeasible. But it is possible and essential.

This teleconference will focus on how to understand and plan for energy resiliency in ways that significantly increase community engagement and create local jobs while minimizing the capital outlays for financially stressed local governments.

Sustain SoCal invites it members, strategic partners and guests to dial-in to our weekly Community Teleconference. Held each Thursday at 2 pm Pacific time, these informal interactive discussions are led by Sustain SoCal members and address strategies and solutions within our recovery and beyond as they relate to energy, supply chain management, transportation, water, human capital management, agriculture, smart cities, cybersecurity, waste stream management, Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), cleantech economic development, ESG and impact investing and more.

To participate in this week’s teleconference, you must be pre-registered. Each upcoming teleconference will require a separate registration. Registrants will receive the dial-in teleconference phone number and an access code the morning of the dial-in event. For questions or assistance in registering, please Email info@sustainsocal.org
