NEBC Olympic Chapter Luncheon
Join NEBC members and their guests for an informal discussion with Casey Sixkiller, E.P.A. Region 10 Administrator. The program will begin with a short introductory presentation from Mr. Sixkiller and then transition to a more open dialogue with the audience for an extended Q&A period. Be sure to register early, as this event is likely to sell out. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to meet our new Region 10 Administrator.

Sixkiller began his career in public service in Washington, D.C., first working for then-U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) and later U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA).
