**This event will still take place but is being moved to a Zoom online meeting. If you’d like to participate, please RSVP and you’ll receive info on how to log on the week prior to the event.**

This session will recap AIA’s work on climate issues across many policy levels. We’ll review what happened in Olympia this year as well as state and local climate policies currently in the works. We’ll also take a look at AIA National’s Big Move on climate and the ongoing work that Shift Zero (AIA is a member) is doing on zero carbon building initiatives.
