Tree Advocates Meetings Parts 1 & 2: Budget Hearings Discussion & Workshop

March 5, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST


Please note: This is an invite-only event for Casey Trees Advocates. Volunteers must be able to attend both Part 1: The Discussion and Part 2: The Workshop in order to participate in this tree advocates meeting series. To register, select tickets for both events. 

Part 1: The Discussion

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 6:30-8 pm

Join the city’s budget experts for a conversation about what the mayor’s proposed 2019 budget means for our trees. As we prepare to testify at the D.C. Council’s upcoming budget hearings, this is your chance to learn about the city’s priorities, ask questions, and collect key information for the testimony you’ll write during the workshop on March 19.

Part 2: The Workshop

Tuesday, March 19, 6:30-8pm

During Part 2, you’ll turn your newfound knowledge and concerns into persuasive testimony. By the end of the night, you’ll register for and submit testimony for an upcoming D.C. Council budget hearing. Casey Trees staff will be available to provide guidance and recommendations as needed.

Meeting Notes:

    • We want to hear from you! What do you want to learn during the discussion on March 5? Though you will have the opportunity to ask questions in person, we are collecting questions in advance too. Send your questions to ktaddei@caseytrees.org.
    • All attendees will be provided with a complimentary dinner at both events. Please note your dietary preferences and/or allergies when registering so we can attempt to accommodate your needs.

Getting There:

The location for this event will be determined shortly and this section will be updated.
