FROM THE EDITOR

It's spring, yeah! One's favorite season is always an energizer and this spring is delivering very nicely. My favorite nature preserve is bursting into bloom with California poppies and related wildflowers. Birds are singing and building nests. And landscapes are vibrant and spreading a million shades of green before my admiring eyes! Yes!

Webinar with Carol McClelland

We are partnering with several green solution providers to bring you new avenues of green business opportunity and visibility.

Carol McClelland, author of the brand spankin' new "Green Careers for Dummies" book will be sharing her tips with us on our very first webinar. Please register early so you get into this informative discussion of where the jobs are... and how to prepare for them.

This is a FREE webinar, and will be helpful for job seekers, as well as business leaders, trainers and career advisors. The "MAP" of green careers is a basic research tool for narrowing in or real opportunities.

California Green Solutions is bringing Carol's webinar to our readers... we hope you will join us:

LA Times "Green Supplement" in mid-May

Got Green? Media Planet Green Business Supplement in LA TIMES - May 14 Need to get the word out about your green solutions in the Los Angeles area? The LA Times is publishing a special "Green Business" supplement on May 14. This might be a great way to build momentum for your products and/or services for solutions in "The Smart Grid", "Solar Power", "Water Conservation", "Energy Efficiency"... or even electric cars!

I will be writing several articles about green solutions for the supplement, so you know there will be good information ... and practical solutions that can be provided by our regional green companies.
