August Quarterly Meeting

LGSEC was pleased to co-sponsor with Central Coast Climate Collaborative (4C) on their Annual Symposium on August 14th in San Luis Obispo. The theme this year was Climate Risk, Equity and Practicing Resilience. LGSEC’s Regulatory Consultant – Steve Moss – gave a Regulatory Update at this meeting.

The 4C Annual Symposium highlighted ongoing work by regional and state adaptation practitioners on the topics of Equity, Adaptation Legislation, and Climate Risk while promoting opportunities for networking and updates from the various organizations involved in protecting the Central Coast from climate-related hazards.

This date was intended to align with those planning to attend the California Climate Action Planning Conference on August 15-16th at Cal Poly SLO.

June 2019 Forum | LGSEC All-Members Strategic Planning Meeting

LGSEC was founded to be the climate and energy policy voice for local governments across California. Since our last strategic meeting, there have been many disruptive events and changes, presenting new challenges and opportunities for local governments. Your voice is needed now to shape the direction and policy priorities of LGSEC’s work.

During this all day meeting, we discussed current and emerging priorities for local governments and work together to shape LGSEC’s direction and priorities for the coming years. This meeting featured brief presentations by Michael McCormick of Harris and Associates (formerly of the Office of Planning and Research) for a presentation of the “State of the Local” and Lillian Mirviss, Gov’t Affairs at OhmConnect to share an example of innovation in energy equity. Our day of facilitated discussion and planning and your participation ensures that LGSEC’s goals and priorities serve your interests!
