“It’s Women’s Time” with Anna Klovstad A Woman Whose Time is Now Wednesday, August 21, 2019 10:00 AM – Noon Please join us for our second and final event of the summer, which continues our theme of “It’s Women’s Time.” We have invited Anna Klovstad to participate in a conversation about Truckee, her challenges as a woman in business, and as a member of the Truckee Town Council. Some ideas we’ll be discussing with Anna are: How has she experienced other women stepping forward into leadership roles? What has been her inspiration? How has she overcome setbacks in her journey? What effects does she see when women obtain positions of responsibility? How has she mentored other women? What issues does she see for women now and in the future? Environmental and sustainable practices are Anna’s passion. She is in a unique position to make a difference at her job as a construction manager for the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. She has also managed the State and Federal award-winning TTUSD sustainability program. Anna holds a degree in Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She recently received her license as a Certified Construction Manager through the Construction Managers Association of America. In 2011, she received her license from the Association of Energy Engineers as a Certified Energy Manager. Anna currently serves on the Truckee Town Council. Anna has been the catalyst for a forest health management coalition planning for an over 250,000- acre forest management project to protect our region from wildfires. She has expanded the Town’s commitment to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions and is supporting the launch of a Truckee green business certification program by the Sierra Business Council. A resident of Truckee since 1997, Anna and her family regularly volunteer for Truckee River Day. It wouldn’t be unusual to catch her picking up trash while she is walking her dog Sofie.
