Over the past 40 years, the Coastal Federation has had profound impacts protecting and preserving our coastal assets.
Today, we also recognize the need to accelerate these actions from both an environmental as well as an economic perspective. We must address the challenges caused by rising sea levels, severe weather events and an ever-growing population along our coast.
That is why the Coastal Executive Leader Council was created under the leadership of Tom Looney, with a mission to support the strategic initiatives of the Coastal Federation and accelerate positive change.
The Coastal Executive Leadership Council is a team of proven leaders in their fields from across NC who each bring unique skills to the table. This Council will drive awareness and statewide support while accelerating both environmental and economic action across our coastal communities.
The Coastal Executive Leadership Council launched in August 2021, springboarding from the federation’s previous President’s Council.
