Town Hall Meeting | Monday, April 25
“Climate Action for IAATO”
The Climate Change Committee has prepared two important proposals for IAATO to strengthen our approach to climate change and further our mission. You are invited to the Town Hall on Monday April 25 to review these proposals with the committee ahead of voting on Thursday 28.
The Town Hall is an informal space for discussion where we hope members will share their thoughts about the proposals and climate action, including their own successes and challenges in tackling climate change.
