Research provided by ecoAmerica reveals there is a sequence of steps, that, if followed, prepares your audience to hear and accept your message and helps move them to action. The CCL Introductory Presentation follows this sequence. You are encouraged to edit the presentation to fit your audience, but try to keep the sequence discussed below in mind. To see how to put this all together, watch the Giving A Presentation training page.

In early 2022, CCL updated the current presentation to add 2021 statistics and several slides celebrating our accomplishments from the past year, as well as new slides to incorporate regional climate impacts.
