Attendees of the 2010 Women In Green Forum will receive lifetime membership to the organization, and have free access to all upcoming forums. The inaugural event is scheduled for September 1 and 2, 2010, at the Pasadena Convention Center. Forum organizers want attendees to develop and feel part of a larger community, as opposed to just attending one event. They are also hopeful that the offer will increase attendance in these uncertain economic times.
In a press release announcing the free membership offer, Jaime Nack, President of the event production company Three Squares Inc. (TSI) and Executive Director of the Women In Green Forum, stated:
“The purpose of the Forum is to connect professionals within the sustainability field in a meaningful way. Our lifetime membership offer will allow attendees to build upon their conference experience every year and cultivate long-term relationships, leading to career growth among individuals and the formation of a powerful Women In Green community. With so little time to solve the many critical environmental issues confronting us, we see an opportunity for the Women In Green Forum to become a driving force in shaping collaborative solutions to the environmental challenges ahead.“
The Forum will cover a wide variety of green topics, from green building to organic food to eco fashion, and will provide several opportunities for women in like industries to get together. There will also be an Expo, showcasing some of the latest in green products. Scheduled speakers include California Senator Fran Pavley, Actress Gloria Rueben, and Sarah Backhouse, host of Planet100.
This is a wonderful opportunity for women to get together and share insights and develop connections that are sorely needed in today’s world. In addition, attendees will have access to a “members only” online portal, allowing them to extend their connections beyond the two-day conference. Organizers are hopeful that the event will serve as the beginning of the development of a powerful network of women driven by sustainability.
