What Does the Presidential Election Mean for the Great Lakes?
RSVP today to join the experts via toll-free conference call

WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 6, 12:30 p.m. CST

For the first time in recent memory, the presidential election has highlighted the importance of the Great Lakes. Join experts, advocates and other media to learn about, ask questions and discuss what the election results mean for our region following a year in which the Great Lakes benefited greatly from the national spotlight.

Alliance CEO and President Cameron Davis, who served as a senior advisor to the Obama-Biden campaign in his personal capacity, and Michael E. Kraft, professor of public and environmental affairs and political science chairman at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, will lead the discussion about the election’s implications for our region. The senior environmental policy director from the new president-elect will also be invited to attend.

Conference call-in capability is available to anyone in the United States who RSVPs. The media is also welcome to attend in person at the Alliance’s Chicago office, 17 N. State Street, Suite 1390.

Call-in information will be e-mailed to you when you RSVP by contacting the Alliance at coastalallies@greatlakes.org.

The event is part of the Alliance’s ongoing Coastal Allies Network program featuring current events discussions. More about the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ Coastal Allies Network is online at www.greatlakes.org. Go to “Get Involved,” and click on “Coastal Allies Network.”
