Please join us for our 12th Annual Environmental Summit on Tuesday, December 6th from 2:00 to 6:00 PM (registration will open at 1:30 PM) in the 11th floor auditorium at the Capital Community College, 950 Main Street, Hartford. Please note the new time and place! In response to comments from last year’s Summit, we have changed venues to a larger space, within walking distance to the train and bus station, and to later in the day.

This year’s Summit promises engaging debate on key environmental issues to expect in 2012, legislative insights from top state leaders and advocates, and plenty of networking opportunities in a new location. We hope you will join us as the environmental community comes together to discuss what’s hot and what’s not, then stay and mingle during our reception at the end of the day.

Free parking until 7:00 PM, will be available in the Capital Community College open air parking lot on Columbus Blvd, between Morgan and Talcott Streets. (see link on left)

Sheltered parking, for a fee, is also available at the Morgan Street Garage at 155 Morgan St., directly behind the college. (see link on left)
