Get inspired and strategize to build support for Carbon Fee & Dividend
Meeting hosts will be present at 11:00 to welcome new volunteers and introduce CCL and carbon fee and dividend. The meeting, with light refreshments, will start at 11:30, with attention given to new member introductions until 11:40 am. We will have updates on chapter activities until noon. After a brief break, we will spend 30 to 45 minutes on a “focus groups”. Volunteers will have the opportunity to meet with one of four focus groups on chapter lobbying efforts, with the chance to take action by writing letters to Congress or to the editor of a newspaper on a current topic. We will end the meeting by talking about our planned actions over the next month. We will adjourn at 1:00 o’clock.
Please feel free to propose various CCL issues for consideration during the meeting.
