Organization: Ohio Environmental Council

Register Here.

The meeting is free and open to all OEC members and the public.
We invite you to submit questions for our policy experts when you RSVP.
OEC members will also have the opportunity to elect members of the Board of Directors during our meeting.  

We cannot deny the magnitude of the challenges we’re facing: an ongoing pandemic, racial unrest, a renewed battle against Statehouse corruption, and the most important election of our lifetimes. Driven by our vision of clean air to breathe, safe water to drink, and bountiful public lands to sustain our health and rejuvenate our spirits, we are adept at taking challenges and turning them into opportunities. As environmentalists, we know resilience. Together, we are fully capable of rising to the challenge. 

Over the past year, against all odds, we have seen major environmental accomplishments. 

Join us virtually for the Ohio Environmental Council’s Annual Meeting to hear from the OEC team about our recent successes and our plans ahead—including the impact of the 2020 General Election on our future work. 

In addition to hearing from the OEC, we are pleased to host Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Strong Sykes as our keynote for this year’s meeting. Born and raised in Akron, Sykes was elected to represent her hometown (OH-34) in November 2014. With a strong sense of responsibility for the well-being of those that she serves, Sykes has tackled the challenges of her district with unmatched passion and dedication. Sykes serves as Democratic leader of the House minority caucus, a position to which she was elected by her colleagues. Sykes comes from a long line of leaders who are unafraid of doing what is right in the face of adversity. We’re excited to host Leader Sykes in this critical moment.
