Be_The_Change

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Boat House at Confluence Park

679 W. Spring Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215

The Boat House Restaurant provides a unique view of the Columbus skyline and scenery of the Olentangy and Scioto riverside. Come and enjoy an evening of networking with fellow conservationists, local government staff, elected officials, Franklin County landowners and our staff!

This year’s meeting will be a networking event with a flexible agenda focused on building new relationships and contacts. Our theme “Be the Change for Clean Water” recognizes our past and is an exciting look ahead! In the previous years we have used themes focused on clean water including “Acting for Clean Water” in 2011 and “Celebrating 40 Years of the Clean Water Act” in 2012.

At the event we will debut the new bethechangeforcleanwater.org website, a collaborative platform for residents, organizations, and businesses across county lines to take ownership of the future of clean water.

Registration will begin at 5 p.m. with appetizers and finger foods provided throughout the evening. A short welcome speech along with awards will begin at 6 p.m. and a silent auction will be held all night with bidding to end at 7:15 p.m. All proceeds from the silent auction will go towards our Conservation Fund which supports mini grants for conservation projects all across Franklin County.

In addition to highlighting important local conservation achievements of the past year, the annual meeting provides Franklin County residents the opportunity to vote for a new member of our Board of Supervisors. Two supervisors will be elected this year. Information on voting and candidates is available. See “Board of Supervisors’ Election” for information on voter eligibility.

To attend the Annual Meeting, complete the registration form and mail with check or invoice request by Sept. 18th. Those who prefer to pay by credit card may register online by Sept. 25th at: https://fswcd71.eventbrite.com.
