Yesterday I spent the afternoon and evening at Guilford College in Greensboro as part of a speaker series on sustainability. I had to change it up a fair bit-on the fly-but this is largely what I said:
Tomorrow Tami and I drive to Carlisle PA. At night I am speaking at Matt Stieman’s Collegiate Biodiesel Conference. On Saturday I am speaking at a Local Food Conference. Here is what I am going to say:
Tomorrow I am speaking at the Virginia Military Institute. And no, it is not an April Fool’s joke. I intend to drop the boys at school, drive to VA, and give this talk.
On Monday I went to my first board meeting of the NC Biofuels Center. Today I spoke at Biomass South. Tomorrow I’m talking to the kids at UNC.
Yesterday we held our annual meeting at the West End Wine Bar in Chapel Hill. About sixty members showed up for a Coop update.
Tonight I headed to NC State to participate in their 2008 Lecture Series on Energy and the Environment.
This has been an outward facing week for me. When I face inward, I tend to be on janitorial duty. When I face outward, I talk to the world.
I have just come home from the Sustainable Biodiesel Summit/National Biodiesel Board conference in Orlando.
Here I go again. Off to address the Sustainability Foundation Luncheon for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
Tonight I travelled to NC State to speak to the local chapter of Engineers without Borders.
