New Cal Cities Speaker Series debuts June 2 with Secretary Wade Crowfoot of the California Natural Resources Agency

June 1, 2021
The League of California Cities is launching a new virtual speaker series in June, featuring government leaders and policy experts who will share insights on big picture issues and trends that matter most to cities.
Our speakers, like our cities, have diverse perspectives and Cal Cities is excited to bring to our members meaningful dialogue that engages, enlightens, and inspires.

The first speaker in the Cal Cities Speaker Series line up will be Secretary Wade Crowfoot from the California Natural Resources Agency. As a member of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s cabinet, he advises the Governor on natural resources and environmental issues.

As the state enters a drought compounded with continued impacts of wildfires, we are proud to feature Secretary Crowfoot with a timely presentation discussing these threats to our cities and what communities can do to prepare.

Register now to secure a spot to hear Secretary Crowfoot on Wednesday, June 2, 10-11 a.m.

Secretary Crowfoot oversees an agency of 19,000 employees who protect and manage California’s natural resources. This includes the state’s forests and natural lands, rivers and waterways, coast and ocean, fish and wildlife, and energy development.

Secretary Crowfoot believes good natural resources management helps natural places thrive and allows communities and our economy to prosper. His key priorities include:
  • Building California’s resilience to climate change-driven threats, including wildfire, drought, flooding, and sea-level rise.
  • Expanding access to parks, natural places, and outdoor recreation for all Californians.
  • Preserving California’s world-renowned biodiversity of plants and animals.
The Cal Cities Speakers Series will feature high-profile individuals monthly and provide city officials an opportunity to engage in interactive conversations with key leaders and decision-makers on our top advocacy priorities. While registration is required, the series is free to members and League Partners. Non-Cal Cities members will be charged $150. Registration must be completed by June 1 at 3 p.m. and is limited to 1,000 people.

Stay tuned for more information about our exciting line up of future speakers. For questions about webinar registration, please contact Megan Dunn. For all other questions, please contact Christina George.
