REMOTE EVENT: D.C. Bar Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Community Virtual Summer Reception

Date(s):
July 9, 2020
Description:
Credit: 0 Credit Hour
 
The D.C. Bar's Environment, Energy and Natural Resources (EENR) Community presents its popular annual Summer Reception in virtual form. This is an excellent opportunity for environment, energy and natural resources attorneys from private, NGO, and government sectors, as well as law students interested in EENR practice, to meet and mingle and network. Participants will enter different chat rooms in small groups to meet experienced lawyers from government, private practice, industry, and NGOs. The small groups will share their experiences, learn about different EENR practices in D.C., and exchange ideas. Students, new attorneys, and experienced lawyers in the D.C. community will interact and get to know each other. The reception will feature brief remarks by Gina McCarthy (invited), who became President and Chief Executive Officer of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in January 2020. Ms. McCarthy also served as the 13th administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and as assistant administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation. Her leadership led to significant federal, state, and local actions on critical issues related to the environment, economy, energy, and transportation. At the state level, Ms. McCarthy served as commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, deputy secretary of the Massachusetts Office of Commonwealth Development, and undersecretary of policy for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs.
 
This remote event will be hosted on the Zoom platform. You will receive access information from D.C. Bar Communities staff the afternoon prior to the event. The Zoom access information should not be shared with others, as registration is required.
