In February, Dan Smollen over at  Sturdy Roots polled green executives to find out their interest in participate in live seminars and webinars, attending networking events and in enrolling in courses designed to develop their green skills.  I little under 100 executives participated and they released their results earlier this week, with 100% of participants saying that they would attend networking events.

    Interestingly enough I just attended a seminar sponsored by the New York Solar Energy Society with a couple of heavy hitters on the panel. http://nyses.org/Events/20090312-SolarInTheCity
    It was advertised at least in part as a networking event.
