Climate change, and more particularly sea level rise, has become an urgent issue along American coastlines, along with the effects of extreme weather. The third annual 2019 Sea Level Rise and Climate Change Conference, hosted by the national law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson, will take place on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at the Hotel Intercontinental in downtown Miami from 8:30am – 4:30pm (with cocktails following).

The 2019 Conference will offer a business-oriented program that will explore the Why, What and When of successful solutions associated with sea level rise in Florida. The program will feature a full day of relevant and substantive panels and speakers featuring leaders from the real estate, finance and insurance industries plus government and university academicians. FIU's Sea Level Solutions Center will again be active participants.
