Interactive roundtable discussion sessions to share experiences, solve problems, and glean practical advice. These are the epitome of peer-to-peer learning. There will be no slideshows or presentations during these sessions, only discussion. Each table will have key subject matter experts to lead the conversation and all attendees are encouraged to move around the room and to ask plenty of questions. Often conversations continue throughout the event and into the evenings. It is a great way to build relationships with your peers who have similar goals, objectives, and struggles.
Topics will include ideas like campaign planning, green media action, starting an EDA, fundraising, carbon fee and dividend and others!
