2012 Regional Roundtable

Focusing on Regional Priorities: E3, Green Chemistry, and Chemicals of Concern to Puget Sound | Suquamish, Washington

October 23-25, 2012 | Clearwater Resort

PPRC’s 2012 Regional Roundtable will focus on several regional priorities. Those community leaders, manufacturing specialists, efficiency experts, and training gurus will meet to share best practices for implementing energy efficiency projects throughout the region. PPRC will provide opportunities to shorten the learning curve about green chemistry and deepen the conversation around how toxic chemicals are impacting Puget Sound. It’s a great opportunity to network with leaders in the region, sharpen your skills, and get energized—all in a beautiful location that is the Kitsap Peninsula’s best kept secret.
