California Regional Conference
August 07 2008 | Jim's Blog,
We hold regional conferences with the goal of bringing people together for sharing of best practices, vision alignment, regional campaign and policy dialog and this is Surfrider so, we also tend to have some fun while doing all that.
Some highlights include...
Podcasting with Ximena prior to the conference, capturing the back story to her single-use plastics awareness roadshow (podcast will go live here and via itunes).
Seeing impressively high interaction regarding statewide policy issues including eco-system based management, marine life protection act (MLPA), integrated water issues and rise above plastics
Campaign strategy and planning. This is where we deliver and learn activist best practices... and shape the application of them.
But hovering over all these relevant and applicable sessions are the relationships made, campaign skills shared... and seeing the Surfrider network strengthened.
If you are interested in any of this the best way to plug into your local environment is to plug into your local chapters, a list of those are here.
If you don't have a local Surfrider Foundation chapter then send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
