RHEA JEZER, SYMPOSIUM CHAIR
I would like to welcome you to join us for the Fifteenth Annual Symposium, to be held on April 12, 2019 in East Syracuse, New York. This award-winning Symposium is noted as one of if not the most important energy policy conferences held each year in the Northeast. From our first gathering it was obvious that our Symposium was filling a niche bringing important and influential decision makers and inter-disciplinary scholars together to discuss policy, which will influence the next generation. Our speakers are cutting edge and spectacular.
What is most exciting to me is to see the spectrum of backgrounds of our attendees. Representatives from the largest cities to the smallest villages, highly regarded professionals to students, major corporations to start up eco-businesses, employees of every New York State environmental agency, elected officials and commissioners, union leaders and laborers, as well as interested citizens all gather in one room to listen, learn and share. Held in Syracuse, the Symposium consistently draws up to 400 people from all of New York State as well as from several other states. Speakers are national and international. Last year we included nearly one hundred college and graduate students and faculty from over a dozen colleges.
Several hundred people are aware that the place to be in April is Onondaga County, at the Symposium on Energy. When I first conceived of the Symposium, I did not realize to what extent this event would become an avenue to encourage major changes in renewable energy development in the state, in counties and in personal lives. Because of this Symposium we have seen substantive and measurable results in our county, our state and the Northeast region. For me, personally, there could be no better satisfaction.
Please look through all the material in this folder. You will find pictures from past Symposium, past programs, words from attendees and a sponsorship form listing categories.
Thank you very much for your consideration. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more information.
