ELI San Francisco Social with US EPA Region 9 Administrator Wayne Nastri
On the occasion of the Second Annual ELI Western Boot Camp, ELI invited its members to join us at the Marriott Fisherman’s Wharf to meet each other and U.S. EPA Region 9 Administrator Wayne Nastri. Mr. Nastri, a lifelong westerner, was appointed Regional Administrator for Region 9 in October 2001. His tenure has focused on improving air quality in the Central Valley and Southern California and on protecting scarce water resources throughout the arid west. Mr. Nastri is a strong proponent of partnership as the best route to environmental protection.
Before joining EPA, Mr. Nastri held various environmental leadership positions including Board membership for California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (covering Southern California). He also participated in advisory boards for California’s state air quality and waste management agencies. Prior to his appointment, Mr. Nastri was the president of Environmental Mediation Inc.
ELI gratefully acknowledges Paul Hastings for sponsoring the social,
and Jim Strock for assisting with arrangements.
