The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s ForumPlus and Businesses for the Bay programs are teaming up to host a joint Forum in Smithfield, Virginia on June 21st. The combined Forum aims to provide a space for business professionals and watershed,conservation, and community groups to come together in a day of discussion surrounding local environmental issues, sea level rise, and coastal resiliency in the region. The Forum will offer concrete examples of ways that landowners–businesses, organizations, or residents–can help to mitigate for the coming changes. The Forum promotes collaboration, innovation, and commitment to a clean and healthy watershed, and will provide a space for networking, sharing resources, and brainstorming.
The Keynote Speaker is Mr. Brian Ballard (U.S. Navy, Regional Community Plans and Liaison Officer)
Other Speakers include: Michelle Covi (Old Dominion University); Bill Gill (Smithfield Foods); Susan Leidy (Chrysler Museum of Art); Larry Smith (Sentara Norfolk General Hospital); and Emily Steinhilber (Old Dominion University).
