ECRI's Virtual Annual Meeting, Monday June 1st @ 5:00pm
As much as we would prefer to see everyone in-person at our Annual Meeting, we will be meeting virtually via Zoom's video-conferencing app on Monday June 1st due to social-distancing restrictions.
The theme for the Annual Meeting of both ECRI and it's sister organization, the 501(c)(3) Environmental Council of Rhode Island's Education Fund, is "Building Resilient & Equitable Communities After COVID-19".
COVID-19 has deeply affected the lives, economy, and health of our state. Even though Rhode Island is nationally recognized for its strong response to the pandemic, Rhode Islanders are hurting as we cope with job loss, economic uncertainty, and social disconnection.
This year for our annual meeting, ECRI is hosting a virtual panel to reflect on how a strong recovery plan after the COVID-19 pandemic can help Rhode Island become a more livable, healthy place for all.
The distinguished panelists for this most timely discussion will be:
- Marcela Betancur, Director of the RI Latino Policy Institute at Roger Williams University
- Amelia Rose, Executive Director of Groundwork RI
- Jim Vincent, President of the NAACP Providence Branch
The program will be moderated by Joanna Detz publisher of ecoRI News.
All those who plan to attend can register below & you will be sent the Zoom link prior to the event
The Environment Council of Rhode Island wishes to thank the following organizations and people for their support for ECRI and its annual meeting
While we want everyone to attend, and the event is free, we will be asking for donations and looking for Sponsors.
The suggested donation is what we normally charge to attend our Annual Meeting: $40.00. But attendees will have the opportunity to pay what they feel is appropriate, from $0 to "whatever they are comfortable donating."
For organizations and others who wish to help ECRI during this time of reduced fundraising capacity we have two levels of sponsorship, $100 and $200. But again, we are happy to accommodate those who wish to provide greater resources to ECRI.
Register now to join us on June 1st for our Virtual Annual Meeting.
