In 2016 and 2018, North Carolina experienced catastrophic flooding. In the fall of 2019, we’re in a drought. Our growing population and economy are increasing demand for water resources. What steps should North Carolina take to assure abundant supplies of clean water for the future? Bill Holman, NC State Director of The Conservation Fund, will speak. Bill directs The Conservation Fund’s conservation acquisitions program in NC.
His current projects include advocating for North Carolina’s conservation trust funds in the state legislature, working with water & electric utilities to protect water quantity and water quality, and working with communities to build green stormwater infrastructure.
Holman directed Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions state policy program from 2007 – 2012. He served as Governor Jim Hunt’s Secretary of the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources from 1999 – 2000 and as Assistant Secretary from 1998 – 1999. He worked as Executive Director of the NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund, a water quality financing program, from 2001 – 2006.
