High Road Strategies began the New Year participating in a conference sponsored by Ohio University’s Voinovich School and the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA). On January 13, 2010, the Voinovich School and OMA held the second in a series of workshops: “The New Energy Climate for Ohio Manufacturers II,” at the Quest Business and Conference Center in Columbus Ohio. High Road Strategies’ principal Joel Yudken spoke at the event on the topic “Climate policy, energy-intensive industries & U.S. competitiveness.” With the help of funding provided by the Ohio EPA’s Environmental Education Fund, the workshop sought to “provide information on current state and national energy and climate policy and share tools and examples of ways Ohio manufacturers can prepare, adapt and succeed,” according to an event flyer. Over 50 energy and business leaders from around the state attended the first workshop in June 2009, and about as many came to the one in January. For more information click here.
