CleanTech Day in Olympia 


CleanTech Day in Olympia offer CleanTech Alliance members an exclusive opportunity to engage and educate Washington State policymakers on the impact of clean technology research, innovation and jobs. 

In 2017, the CleanTech Alliance delegation briefed more than 30 legislative offices and hand-delivered information to each and every legislator. We expect to do the same in 2018.

Nervous? Don't be! CleanTech Alliance staff will schedule and facilitate each legislative meeting, which will be attended by a small group of your fellow CleanTech Alliance members.

The day-long session concludes with a happy hour networking reception at Boeing House, offering a relaxed opportunity to rub elbows with elected officials and key cleantech industry leaders.

The preliminary draft agenda includes:

  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM:              CleanTech Alliance Board Meeting (Board Members Only)
  • 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM:             What to Expect in Legislative Briefings
  • 11:00 AM - 11:15 AM:            Check-in for Lunch and Roundtable
  • 11:15 AM - 12:45 PM:           
    Round Table Discussion: Can Pricing Carbon Be an Effective Mechanism to Reduce Carbon and Create Jobs?

    Panelists include:
    • Moderator: Jimmy Jia, entrepreneur, educator and author
    • Vlad Gutman-Britten, Washington Director, Climate Solutions
    • Steve Klein, CEO, Klein Tech Advisors; Chair, CleanTech Alliance Board of Directors
    • Chris McCabe, Executive Director, NW Pulp and Paper
    • Lauren McCloy, Senior Policy Advisor, Energy, Office of the Governor
    • Todd Myers, Director, Center for the Environment, Washington Policy Council
    • Senator Tim Sheldon, 35th Legislative District, Senate Committees: Energy, Environment and Telecommunications and Rules
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM:                Legislative Briefings (Members Only)
  • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM:                Reception at Boeing House

There is no cost to attend for CleanTech Alliance members, but registration is required. Events will take place on the Capitol Campus except for the reception which is at Boeing House. Venue addresses will be emailed to registered attendees prior to the event. 

Please note:

  • Legislative briefings are open only to CleanTech Alliance members.   
  • Non-members can register to attend the Principles of Good Climate Policy Roundtable and Networking Reception, but cannot attend legislative briefings.
  • Plan to spend the entire day with us. Legislative briefings change on an ongoing basis. We will not be able to provide a schedule of briefings in advance. 
  • We need both your home address (where you vote) and your work address to set up legislative briefings. Click here to identify your legislative district based on address.
