From Lise Luchsinger Wineland, Executive DirectorThe changing color of the leaves and dropping temperatures tell us that Autumn is upon us and that the hustle and bustle of the holidays will be here before we know it. I was reminded of this earlier this week while celebranting Canadian Thankgsgiving at the Canadian Consulate. Our Canadian friends remind me of all for which I am grateful.
also grateful and inspired by the Northwest Remediation Conference held
in Seattle last month. Words are not enough to express my appreciation
to the committee and NEBC staff who worked countless hours to bring
quality information to the attendees. My thanks also goes out to the
sponsors who supported the effort, as well as the exhibitors. This
abundance of knowledge resulted in enormous growth of the event,
bringing twice the number of exhibitors and a fifty percent increase in
attendees from last year. I can't wait to see what happens next year.
Looking forward, NEBC is thrilled to welcome a powerful lineup
for Washington’s Energy Future Conference on November 1. Not only does
the conference offer leading experts in the field of energy, but
also international leaders from Canada and China as our keynote speakers
surely will demonstrate that challenges such as climate change do not
the border. We'll be hearing from Canada’s Ambassador to the United
States of America, David MacNaughton, and the Director of Energy
Conservation Division for the
Department of Environmental Protection and Resource Conservation of
National Development and Reform Commission of the People's Republic of
Zhao Hauiyong. We are honored by their presence and grateful for their
time and insights. We hope to see you, also.
Thank You to Our September Members
