ACE 2020 Young Professional Virtual Events

Young Professionals’ Breakfast Club 
Livestream on Wednesday, July 1, 9:00 am - 10:00 am ET

Dear A&WMA Professionals, we hope you accept the fact that we want to sacrifice a whole Wednesday at ACE doing all of the things YPs do best. And you're crazy if you think we aren’t going to kick it off with our annual professional networking breakfast telling you, our new mentors, all about who we think we are. You see us as you want to see young professionals - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But at our breakfast, what you will find out is that each one of us is an academic...and a consultant...and a industry...and a scientist...Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours, The YP Breakfast Club. *Queue “Don’t You Forget About Me”*

Reminder: All attendees must register for the ACE 2020 Virtual Conference to participate in the YP Breakfast Club.
YP/Introductory Technical Session: How Does It Work? – Climate Risk and Adaptation
Livestream on Wednesday, July 1, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm ET

As the risk of climate change increases, there is growing pressure from stakeholders and regulators for industry and municipalities to assess their exposure to climate hazards and implement adaptation measures to minimize their risk. However, climate risk assessment and adaptation planning are difficult and often require specialized expertise, and collaborative effort. This panel session will introduce practical methods for climate risk assessment and provide real-world examples of adaptation planning in the public and private sectors. It will try to answer the question on how we can balance the interests of regulators, industry and the public, while passing effective climate management policies.The panelists will include a climate risk specialist and representatives from industry and government.
