Last night, Aaron Sikes attended a mixer held at Davis’ own microbrewery, Sudwerk. The event was hosted by the Association of Environmental Professionals, and was targeted at members of the industries involved with environmental management efforts. Consultants, laboratory technicians, site supervisors, project managers, real estate developers, and service providers all came together at the brewery to network and nosh. We were also granted a tour of the brewing facilities and a tasting of Sudwerk’s four flagship beers, led by the master brewers themselves.
Some contacts were made that would be a good fit for the next Plan Green conference, including a full-service telecom company that focuses on sustainable delivery of their services. Another happy result of the mixer is that CEVS has been invited to present at an upcoming meeting hosted by the West Coast chapter of the Professional Environmental Marketing Association. As part of their Fall meeting, PEMA is bringing a vintner to discuss sustainability in their winemaking practices. The host for this event would also like to have information presented about sustainable meeting venues in the region.
