Help us make history at the Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference as we recognize exceptional climate adaptation leaders in the Carolinas!
Join us at CCRC this September when we announce the winner
What Is the RALA?
CISA is excited to partner with the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP) to present the first ever Carolinas Regional Adaptation Leadership Award (RALA). The RALA, first awarded in California in 2016, recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in the climate adaptation field through exceptional leadership. It acknowledges the fact that deliberate, proactive adaptation, preparedness, and resilience-building is a change process, a deviation from business-as-usual, and a courageous act of doing something new and different. At its heart are individuals who make this change happen, sometimes with very few resources. The RALA recognizes distinguished adaptation leaders who approach their work in a strategic, sophisticated, well informed, inclusive, and effective manner.
Carolinas RALA Award
- $500 cash
- a year of ASAP membership (valued at $150)
