2020 CleanTech Day in Olympia will be February 3rd

Check back for more information.

Information from 2019’s CleanTech Day can be found below.

This event offers CleanTech Alliance members an exclusive opportunity to engage and educate Washington State policymakers on the impact of clean technology research, innovation and jobs. 

In 2018, the CleanTech Alliance delegation briefed more than 35 legislative offices and hand-delivered information to each and every legislator. We expect to do the same in 2019.

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.
