Dear Chamber Colleagues,

Please join the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE) and several Chamber CEOs from across the country at the upcoming Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on Sept 13th 2:30-5:30. The Global Summit is being organized by Governor Brown's Office and the United Nations.

Join your Chamber colleagues at the Aquarium of the Bay for an interesting and fun event, including a reception and tour of the Aquarium.

As part of the Global Summit, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and CICE will host a lively interactive discussion featuring Local Chamber CEOS from different parts of the country (both urban and rural). At this session, you will learn how Local Chambers around the country are helping their member businesses and communities engage and prosper in the clean energy space. We will also explore how Local Chambers can help create more resilient communities as we confront more extreme weather events.

We have made it very easy for California Local Chamber CEOs and Chamber senior staff to be part of the upcoming Global Climate Action Summit which will bring together government leaders, businesses, entrepreneurs and investors from around the world September 12-14, in San Francisco.

Tallia Hart, President and CEO, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce will welcome you all to the session.
