The North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC) will host the 3rd Annual North Carolina Federal Environmental Symposium on June 13, 2012 at the Holiday Inn Bordeaux & Conference Center (1707 Owen Drive, Fayetteville, NC 28304) in Fayetteville, North Carolina from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM
The Symposium will help military bases and federal agencies in the southeast US to meet their “Net Zero” energy, water, solid waste and pollution reduction goals, while creating business opportunities for North Carolina businesses. The Symposium will engage up to 350 industry and government representatives in discussions about current federal energy and environmental initiatives, future requirements and industry recommendations to achieve “Net Zero” goals.
“The federal government’s drive to generate as much energy as it uses, to minimize waste and to remediate pollution generates tremendous opportunity for businesses in our state,” said Scott Dorney, NCMBC Executive Director. “Businesses that can help our military meet its energy and environmental mandates – while creating jobs – should not miss this Symposium.”\
Scheduled to attend, provide keynote remarks and participate in Symposium Forums include:
- Richard G. Kidd IV, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Energy and Sustainability)
- Tad Davis, Chief Executive Officer, United States Army Reserve Command
- William Tayler, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy)
- Megan McCluer, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Energy)
- Shyam Reddy, Regional Administrator, Southeast Sunbelt Region, GSA
- Representatives from: Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune, Cherry Point, New River, Seymour Johnson AFB and the NC National Guard; Shaw AFB and Fort Jackson, SC; the US Army Corps of Engineers; and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command
“I believe that this Symposium will engage the largest number of senior federal energy and environmental officials ever in direct discussions with North Carolina businesses,” said Dorney. “Businesses in the energy and environmental sector should not miss this unique opportunity to develop their military and federal business and to grow jobs here in North Carolina.”
