ALCC would like to invite you to a couple of important H-2B events in June!

Colorado Representative Virtual Meetings, Tuesday, June 22, 7AM - 3PM (potentially 12PM)
In lieu of meeting with our Colorado representatives in person during the traditional July “fly-ins” that NALP has arranged in the past, ALCC will be coordinating Zoom calls on their behalf instead. While I would encourage you to still register with NALP for Legislative Days 2021 Virtual, please let me know if you are planning to attend. The day is scheduled from 7AM to 3PM, but my goal is to schedule the meetings tightly and hope to shorten the day to 7AM to 12PM if possible.

An IBM study, in partnership with the National Retail Federation, asked nearly 19,000 people in 28 countries around the world about sustainability and its role in their habits as consumers.
