This includes, but is not limited to, discussing competitively sensitive information or any items dealing with pricing, bidding, boycotts, production, or exclusionary or predatory practices.

In coming together to generate solutions to these tough and critical problems, we must not use this space to influence governmental decision making as the laws around these activities are nuanced.  Accordingly, partners of the Reservoir Center and event attendees may not engage in lobbying activities while at the Reservoir Center. We consider lobbying activities to mean attempts by an individual or organization to influence decisions made by a government, and includes the preparation, research, background work, or planning for influencing such decisions.
