Register today for the July 31, 2015 public forum – Shaping Our Economic Future: Offshore Drilling in N.C. being hosted and organized by the N.C. Coastal Federation to explore the realities of offshore oil and gas development in North Carolina. What does the North Carolina coast look like today – economically, environmentally and socially? How could this change with the introduction of the oil and gas industry? This forum is intended to delve into the economic truths, environmental implications, and actual effects on coastal communities. Speakers include researchers, regulators, elected officials and coastal residents, from the Gulf of Mexico to Currituck Sound.
This event is scheduled for Friday, July 31, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center. Registration, including lunch and break refreshments, is $20.00.
Forum participants are also invited to join us for the Pelican Awards Celebration and Silent Auction immediately following the forum at the North Carolina History Center. This Celebration will feature live music, a shrimp boil and heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction with a variety of coastal-themed items. Price for the Celebration is $50.00 for Federation members and $60.00 for non-members.
