Join us in New York City and start the New Year by learning, connecting and strategizing with funder colleagues at the Meeting on Northeast Climate and Energy Opportunities, co-sponsored by CGBD/CEFG and EGA.

We will explore the importance of the Northeast as a leading region and ways to further leverage progress nationally and discuss a long-term vision for the NE and how to get there. As always we will also highlight near-term opportunities to accelerate progress.
