There's a couple of green conferences on the horizon.
First up, this Friday and Saturday, is the Chautauqua County Energy Conference and Expo in Mayville. Here's a link to the agenda. Sessions include one by the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities on their proposed coal-fired power plant (Saturday at 9:45 a.m.), followed at 12:45 p.m. by Walter Simpson, who will no doubt be offering a different perspective.
On Nov. 22, Sam Hoyt is hosting a Green Jobs Conference from 8 a.m. to noon at ECC's downtown campus. This is a follow to the successful green conference held at Buffalo State College in April.
The conference will touch on 10 topics: community revitalization; manufacturing; public awareness and education; energy; existing opportunities and best practices; creating opportunities and industries; training programs; housing waste management and recycling; transportation; and public health and food.
