Westinghouse Electric Company provided the first nuclear power plant in the United States in 1957. Since then, the company has provided the technology basis for almost half of the current worldwide fleet of 430 plus reactors, including 60 percent of those operating in the United States and essentially all of the plants in France. Today, Westinghouse is actively building new plants in South Korea while pursuing new plant business in China. Westinghouse also provides inspection, maintenance and refueling services throughout the world. Join Westinghouse to discuss public perceptions of nuclear power as well as the safety and environmental aspects of the technology.

Sand County Foundation

Sand County Foundation, a leader in private lands conservation for nearly 40 years, celebrates the release of a new book, "Natural Resources as Community Assets, Lessons from Two Continents." The book chronicles the successes and failures of a handful of experiments from North America and Africa that explore the idea that proprietorship, communal will, and livelihood benefit are the levers of incentive for environmental stewardship. Join us for cocktails and conversation about this new brand of environmental activism. Copies of the book will be available for the first 25 guests.
