The 6th Annual EAC Summit is an informal EAC information sharing and networking event. Three short presentations on climate action updates and useful tools will give EACs and municipalities a hand up to get their own programs into high gear. For networking, a representative from each EAC selects their most pressing issue for discussion and shares questions and approaches. While we cannot share a meal or be in the same room, our virtual event still provides an accessible opportunity to learn about what EAC's in the area are doing by sharing their knowledge and exploring opportunities to collaborate and make each EAC more effective in its mission. We encourage local EACs to attend this micro-regional gathering – Hosted by Haverford Township EAC - although all in the Delaware Valley are welcome to attend. See agenda below.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with link and information for joining the event.
