Guelph Energy Managers - Fall 2019
Friday, 18 October 2019 from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM (EDT)
Marg Mackinnon Community Room
Guelph City Hall
Is summer over already? The kids are back at school, the nights are getting cool, and soon we'll close the outdoor pool. Another heating season will soon be upon us, with climbing natural gas bills, the joys and challenges of Canadian winter, and - yes - the transition to a new decade. What better reason to reflect on what the Guelph Energy Managers community of practice has accomplished so far, and where we want to go from here? Join us at City Hall for the opportunity to brainstorm on the future of GEMS.
As a bonus, learn more about the energy efficiency and sustainability features of City Hall, and (optionally) join us for a tour to see these features first hand!
Until the new Wilson Street parkade is open, our options are limited. If you can't walk or bike or take Guelph Transit, you can try your luck with on-street parking; otherwise, you can go for the sure thing with the Elizabeth Street Lot, a lovely seven-minute walk from City Hall.
