  • Accelerating Green Investment in Frederick County: Could a Green Bank Work?
  • Green Schools in Frederick County

Hood College President Andrea E. Chapdelaine, Ph.D., will kick off the summit with opening remarks ahead of featured keynote speakers County Executive Jessica Fitzwater, Mayor Michael O’Connor and Climate Change Commission Commissioner Michael C. Powell.
