For our March 2024 Chapter Meeting, we had a rare glimpse into the behind-the-scenes event set-up pre-SXSW. Our EHS Walkthrough at the Austin Convention Center resulted in 39 submissions to help the Austin Convention Center team work with Convention Center Leadership on communicating and discussing systemic solutions to promote environmental, health and safety for all workers and visitors.
