Cindy Lane began her career working to improve the built environment at multidisciplinary architecture and engineering firms. She has since worked to advance a range of sustainable land use issues — from increasing access to healthy food, open space, and public transit to advocating for state and federal policies that protect water quality, expand clean energy infrastructure, and address climate change. Most recently, she served as the Water Program Director for the Iowa Environmental Council and previously served as their Climate and Energy Policy Specialist. She received a B.L.A. (Landscape Architecture) from Iowa State University, an M.A. (Urban and Regional Planning) from the University of Iowa, and a J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law.
Linda started her environmental conference business, Green Meetings, in 1991. Over the 20 years she has been in business, she has educated and, in the early stages, arm-twisted venues and vendors to implement green meeting processes. Linda has been instrumental in changing vendor and venue practices in the United States and Canada. Her business clients' focus is environmental and social change, and she delights in working with them to help provide core environmental meeting services, from recycling a wide range of materials to using non-toxic cleaning materials and re-using linens, composting food waste, and providing locally grown, in-season, organic menus. Reduce, reuse, and recycle is the foundation of her Green Meetings business model.
