20-20 Vision: Clarifying Our Regional Climate Strategy
Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference
Sharpen your focus on the strategies and partnerships that will be needed to build support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act in 2020! Our goal is to inspire, inform, connect, and collaborate across state and district boundaries and with other organizations in our region who are concerned about the urgent need for climate action. Working together, we will find the most powerful lens for each of our Mid-Atlantic members of Congress to see clearly how our climate solution will benefit their constituents. Through the arts, we’ll envision our shared natural heritage and our common future together.

Travel & Parking
The conference center and hotel are easily accessible by car or train. The riverfront area is located just off of Interstate 95 near downtown Wilmington, and ample free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the Chase Center.
The Chase Center is located about a mile from the Wilmington train station, which receives both Amtrak northeast corridor and SEPTA regional commuter trains. You can reach the Chase Center/Westin Hotel from the train station via a 20-minute walk or 7-minute taxi, Uber or Lyft ride. A Greyhound bus station is also located just a block farther from the train station.
We welcome like-minded organizations or businesses who would like to share information about their work, goods, or services at one of our vendor tables. There are a small number of tables available on a first-come, first served basis. Each vendor registration includes both a table reservation and a ticket for one person representing the organization to attend the conference. Additional vendor representatives should register separately.
