The spring Sustainability Seminar Series continues on March 27 with the talk "Sustainability and Resilience Planning at the Local Level" by Stacy Kruse of Rutgers University.

This will include choosing clients for collaboration, adjusting scopes of work accordingly, managing client expectations and remaining open-minded and respectful in a sometimes divisive and heated political climate.
