Gregg Mindt, NEBC Executive Director
Like you, NEBC has been closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and our first priority will always be the health and safety of our employees, members, event attendees, and other partners. While we remain optimistic about the future, we have also been proactive in post-posing a few conferences and events.
As you know, we are the convener of the environmental sector in the Northwest. We bring people and organizations together. With recent changes allowing groups to convene, we find ourselves responding with resilience, being nimble for our members and the environmental community in the Northwest.
We will continue to bring people together and are actively working on innovative ways to deliver educational content & facilitate networking and dialogue. The short-term challenges we face will require us to explore new opportunities. These opportunities will include video, audio, and web-based content delivery, in addition to in-person events.
As always, but especially now, we are grateful for your ongoing support and partnership and the positive outlook so many of you have conveyed. On behalf of the NEBC board of directors and staff, thank you. We look forward to an improvement of the current Coronavirus situation throughout the Northwest and beyond and we look forward to connecting with you soon.
Please stay tuned as we continue to update the calendar for 2020. As of now, these are the dates we have ‘confirmed’ and ‘to be determined’.
