LEAD Green

Join us at the Spring Education Day and Annual Meeting as we LEAD GREEN at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center in Madison, WI!

Start the event off right Wednesday evening as we mingle with our PCMA partners…sure to be good time!

On Thursday, hear from speakers on the following topics:

  • Your Road Map to CSR
  • Green event trends
  • Bandwidth or Bust
  • Location Services for Events

Jeff Hurt from Velvet Chainsaw will provide our keynote on How To Be Lean, Mean & Green At Your Next Event: Three Green Philosophies To Consider

** New this year: CSR ACTIVITY! **
Clean out your closet and bring professional clothes to donate to the Dane county CAC! Then join the afternoon CSR activity to organize our donations and prepare notes of encouragement to those who will use the donations to obtain employment in the area.
INCENTIVE! For every 5 donations items you bring in, you will receive 1 entry in to a special drawing. The more items…the better your chances to win!
Receipts will be available onsite to recognize your tax-deductible donation of clothing.

Community Outreach

Professional Clothing Drive for the Clothing Center, at the Dane County Community Action Coalition
The CAC actively engages all parts of our communities in the struggle to eliminate poverty.  Their Clothing Center serves 9,000 low income individuals and families each year. Many of their families live pay check to pay check and the Clothing Center allows them to stretch their budgets a little further. All clothing should be clean, and gently used, or new. They will also accept accessories such as purses, hair accessories, ties, hats, shoes, backpacks, and luggage.  They do have a significant need for socks, and undergarments of all ages, however if at all possible these items should be new.
In addition to the clothing drive, we will also have a hands-on  activity in the afternoon.
So please join in on the fun, search your closet, bring in some items, and help to make a difference in the lives of those in our community!
