Presented by Climate Solutions, NEBC, Renewable Northwest Projects and the Software Association of Oregon

This year is presents a historic opportunity for Oregon to enact climate change policy. Governor Kulongoskib has recommended a significant package of climate bill for the 2009 legislative session. The Bills focus on energy efficiency, creating carbon markets, creating new funding and incentives for renewables such as solar, energy efficiency and new clean transportation infrastructure and incentives. We believe that it can drive economic opportunities for many of our members. We would like to give you an opportunity to learn more about it and get involved if you are interested. Creating a "smart grid" to save energy creates new opportunities for the software industry.

We are working with a local group, Climate Solutions, that works to find practical and profitable solutions to climate change. They are part of an organized campaign to pass the legislation. Climate Solutions is engaged in organizing business community support. We would like to invite you to a meeting to learn about the Governor's Climate change package and what the business community can do to get involved. We will have speakers to talk about the details of the package and we will also discuss the business campaign that we are organizing to support the Governor.

At this meeting, we will have speakers to explain the Climate Package, the business case and the how you can get involved.

Presenters Brian Shipley, Deputy Chief of Staff Gregg Small, Climate Solutions Lisa Adatto, Climate Solutions Jake, Weigler, Healthy Climate Partnership
