CTSI Policy Day

ONE DAY, ONE VOICE - March 5, 2008: Washington DC

It's time to take ACTION!

Why Should You Attend?

The voice of Clean Technology must be clearly heard in Congress. As campaign platforms are launched and appropriations are made, it is critical that our elected representatives understand the economic impact of clean & sustainable technologies and how federal policy affects your business!

Come share your stories, your needs, and give support to the clean technology policy agenda which includes:

  • Increasing funding for clean and sustainable technology applied research and deployment.
  • Providing for long-term renewable energy tax incentives and implementation policies.
  • Developing tax incentives/capital depreciation mechanisms that encourage investment in efficiency upgrades, clean technology implementations, and life-cycle product management.
  • Encouraging clean & green federal procurement policies.
  • Supporting efforts to remove barriers to public market capital.

Who Should Attend?

Congress wants to hear from the companies and organizations that are changing the energy, water, and environmental landscapes through innovative technologies, processes, or just straight-forward implementation!   If you are a senior-level executive at a clean technology company, a clean or sustainable expert or director at a Fortune 1000 company, an investor or financing agent, or another member of the clean technology community that wants to have a seat at the policy table, please contact us for an invitation.
Note: There is NO CHARGE to attend this event, but SPACE IS LIMITED!

What is Happening?

  • Evening of March 4th: Dinner sponsored by K&L Gates to provide an overview of the activities the next day, to review the high-level policy agenda, and to provide an opportunity for our industry leaders to network.   Information packets will be distributed for meetings the next day.
  • March 5th: We will start with an early breakfast to provide final details to the day's activities. During the day, we will conduct scheduled meetings with clean technology and renewable energy champions and other influential leaders on Capitol Hill, including Senators, Representatives, and key staff. These meetings will be organized in small groups according to the location of your organization and industry focus. Please plan for meetings through late afternoon.

What if I'm Not a Policy Expert?:

We aren't expecting our participants to be policy experts. CTSI, through the support of its member organizations, is working with its partner K&L Gates to deliver advocacy services. We understand that you need to be focused on making your organization successful. What we do want is your passion, energy, and commitment to increasing the awareness of clean technology and its importance to growing a strong and sustainable economy.
