    "The accelerating momentum of the sustainable development conversation creates a unique opportunity to unite the members of the global community located in Washington," stated WEC President & CEO Terry F. Yosie. "With its diverse membership, worldwide initiatives and network of senior relationships, the World Environment Center is ideally positioned to provide a neutral, interactive platform to advance the common interests of diverse stakeholders."
