About the Venue 


The Summit will be held in the Byron Sher Auditorium of the Cal/EPA Headquarters Building.

In December 1999, California Construction Link magazine awarded the new Cal/EPA building "Best of 1999 Awards--Outstanding Engineering." The award was for "innovation in air handling, window placement, and recycling, resulting in a 25-story office tower with significant energy savings over California's stringent energy codes."

The building is located in downtown Sacramento at the corner of 10th and I streets. There are many transportation options to this location.
