October Meeting

Park City, UT - October 27-28

Every couple of years we try and have a CAST meeting at one of our out-of-state member communities. This October, Park City, UT, has generously offered to host our meeting and we'd like to show our support with a strong turnout. At that meeting, Park City will be presenting their performance measurement program, and we plan on having presenters/discussions on sustainability and climate change.

We'd like to get an idea of how many members will be able to make that meeting. Please go to the CAST web site as soon as you can and RSVP if you will be able to attend.
