Supporting Behavior Change for Good
Please Join PNSMA from 11:30 am-1pm on March 31st for our Spring Quarterly Forum.
We are thrilled to announce that our topic for this forum is plastics.
McKenna Morrigan from Cascadia Consulting will be moderating a panel on plastics. She led the strategy development for a recent Department of Ecology plastic packaging study. McKenna also served as technical advisor for the EPR policy for packing in Washington that was recently introduced as a bill in the last legislative session.
She will be joined by:
· Becca Fong, Seattle Public Utilities

Nora Nickum is the Ocean Policy Manager at the Seattle Aquarium, where she works on state and federal policies to protect ocean health, including by curbing plastic pollution and waste. She previously worked on climate policy with the US Agency for International Development and as a consultant for local governments, and has a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School.
