ESAC Conference 2015 in Ottawa Update
Here is some more information for you about the conference and another updated draft of the conference program!
Wine and Cheese/ Annual General Meeting – June 2nd, 5pm
The ESAC Conference Wine and Cheese event will directly follow the Annual General Meeting, where ESAC President and Conference Chair Veronica Wahl will give an update on the association. There will be a cash bar, but the first drink is on us for all registered conference participants! Both events will take place in the lobby of the Advanced Research Complex (ARC).
ESAC Banquet – June 3rd, 7pm (RSVP!)
This year the ESAC banquet is an informal dinner (food and drink is not covered) that will be held at The Green Door – a very popular local vegetarian restaurant – a 15 minute walk from campus. Participants are asked to RSVP now by email so we know how many people to include in our finalized reservation.
Updated (draft) Schedule and Session Chairs:
The attached document includes a semi-final draft of our conference program. Please note the time and location of your session as it may have changed. You will also note that we are still looking for session chairs for some sessions. If you think you would make a suitable chair for one of these sessions please let us know.
Bring your own reusable water bottle (and heck, a travel mug while you’re at it)! On September 1, 2010 the University of Ottawa, in collaboration with the Student Federation (SFUO), became the first University in Ontario to put a complete and immediate stop to the sale of bottled water on its campuses. We encourage delegates to bring their own reusable water bottles from home and fill them at the university’s numerous fountains, which can be found in all buildings. And, since we are the Environmental Studies Association of Canada, let’s go the extra step to bring our own travel mugs for coffee too.
Finally – please note that the deadline for nominations for ESAC’s “Environmental Community Organizer” (ECO) Award 2015 is quickly approaching – nominations are due May 1st. Please consider nominating someone whom you feel deserves the recognition. This year’s winner will be announced at the Annual Conference during the Wine and Cheese /AGM event. More details can be found here.
Many thanks. Do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.
