Never been to the Toast? Here is a recap from the 2020 event:

On February 26th CCA hosted another successful “Toast to Clearing the Air” reception.

Our speakers that year were California Air Resources Chair Mary Nichols, who made a fashion statement by donating a t-shirt to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

She was joined by California Energy Commission Chair David Hochschild, who fills the environmental position on the five-member

Commission and in the past also served as a commissioner at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

More than 150 elected officials, environmental leaders, policy makers and advocates joined us to hear what they had to say and

a great time was had by all!  Visit our FB page for more pictures.
