    • Thanks for your interest! It just happened that we had speakers who presented about the environment. We’ll be sure to watch out for more speakers who touch on the subject since it was a popular session.


  1. Will there be more presentations on writing about climate change in 2016? As an STC and 350BA member, I’m eager to hear more.
