"In this industry, it’s extremely rare to have an opportunity to meet with young hydropower professionals.  However, at the Young Professionals Happy Hour, within the span of an hour, I was able to meet new developers, technical consultants, resource experts, and fellow attorneys that share my passion for hydropower.  I’d recommend this event to anyone interested in meeting dedicated and passionate hydropower advocates."
