SSDN's Annual Meeting is a face-to-face opportunity for members to share new ideas.
SSDN's Annual Meeting gathers city and county government sustainability directors and professionals from throughout the Southeast. SSDN members discuss sustainability issues through dynamic interactions and relationship building.
Our Annual Meeting is a face-to-face opportunity for members to share and learn from each other. This is a member-focused and member-driven event, and the meetings strive to provide appropriate and relevant information.
Presentations and discussions focus on how initiatives, projects, and topic areas are transferable or replicable in other southeastern communities. Members are encouraged to discuss challenges and lessons learned, and to share openly about their own experiences.
Additionally, members explore the host city's sights, sounds, and entertainment.
