Green Business Roundtable

The Green Business Roundtable (GBR) is one of the most innovative and successful lunchtime networking events in Durango. Routinely attended by over 95 business leaders, elected officials, and influential community members, GBR inspires innovative discussions on timely issues affecting our region. GBR is non-partisan.

 

2021-2022 Season

If you’re a seasoned GBR attendee, please note that this year will look different for several reasons. The timing of GBR has been pushed back one month and will be held October 2021 through May 2022. GBR’s new home will be the Powerhouse Science Center with catering by DuranGourmet, due to the closing of the Strater Theatre in 2020. We are excited to get back to GBR in-person, and continue the GBR tradition supporting another local nonprofit.
We are kicking off the 2021-2022 season on October 13th. You won’t want to miss any, so mark your calendars for the 2nd Wednesday of each month through May 2022. You can purchase your Block Reservation, which includes all 8 lunches, here. If you purchase by October 6th, you will get 10% off!
As we know, there has been uncertainty surrounding events due to COVID-19 concerns. We’re continuously observing how similar events are taking place and will have the following protocol during GBR:
  • All attendees must provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination or negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours, along with a photo ID.
  • Masks will be required when not eating.
  • Hand sanitizer will be required prior to going through lunch buffet.
Please note, if capacity constraints are set by the state we still intend to hold GBR in person. Priority will be given to blockholders. Blocks that were purchased at a discount will not be refunded should one GBR be held virtually. Any more lunches beyond one will be refunded. Thank you for your understanding.

Green Business Roundtable: Net Zero Affordable Housing

2021-2022 Season

How it works

Lunch and ample networking time is provided prior to the 25-minute presentation. Local, regional, and national speakers engage us in diverse topics related to business, the regional economy and environmental stewardship. Attendee announcements close out each meeting, which we limit to 1 hour.

Block Reservations: Reserve your seat for all remaining lunches of the season.  No RSVP necessary for block reservation holders and they are  fully transferable – so send a colleague or friend if you are unable to attend. Purchase your block reservation or contact info@sanjuancitizens.org to reserve. If you purchase by October 6th, you will receive a 10% discount. Please note, if capacity constraints are set by the state we still intend to hold GBR in person. Priority will be given to blockholders. Blocks that were purchased at a discount will not be refunded should one GBR be held virtually. Any more lunches beyond one will be refunded. Thank you for your understanding.

Monthly Reservations: Purchase or RSVP by the Thursday prior to each luncheon either through the events page on this website or emailing susan@sanjuancitizens.org. Payment of $18 for lunch is implied, no-shows or cancellations with less than 48 hours notice may be invoiced. The price for walk-ins or late RSVPs is $24. Reservations will be released at 12:10.

Walk-Ins: A limited number of walk-ins are available without RSVPs for $24.
