Generation Charleston, the emerging leaders group of the Charleston Area Alliance, will focus on the environment with a panel discussion during its May Meeting.

A group of experts from various sectors and backgrounds will be talking about environmental regulations, policies, activism, research and economics.

“One of Generation Charleston’s goals is offering learning opportunities for our members,” said Emily Bennington, Generation Charleston co-chair. “This year, we’ve hosted professional development events that spotlighted higher education, holding public office and Parliamentary Procedure. The environment is a significant issue that affects many facets of our lives. It’s an issue often discussed and debated, so we of course feel it is of interest.”

The panelists include:
Edward L. "Skipp" Kropp - Attorney with Jackson Kelly focusing on environmental law, Chair of the WV Chamber of Commerce Air Quality sub-committee, former Chief of the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection Office of Air Quality, former Deputy Director of the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection
Pam Nixon - Environmental Advocate, West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection
Stephanie Timmermeyer - Attorney and environmental consultant with Timmermeyer, PLLC, former forester, former Secretary of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection
Tim Mallan- Appalachian Power Environmental Affairs Manager, member Environmental Safety and Health Committee of the West Virginia Manufactures Association
Don Garvin - Legislative Coordinator with WV Environmental Council

The event is free.

Appalachian Power is hosting networking receptions before and after the panel with food and drinks provided.
