The Rincon Group has three main categories of meetings/programs:
- Issues Programs
- Conservation Committee Meetings
- Executive Committee Meetings
Issues Programs: Issues Programs are on the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Open to the public - presentation to be announced (see below). Our Issues Programs are held at the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) (unless otherwise noted). Catch up on the status of local issues, discuss environmental topics, and meet friendly folks. The SEIU (Service Employees International Union) building is at 1600 N. Tucson Blvd. (one block south of Elm Street). There is free, on-site parking for these free events. Programs are held on the second Thursday of every month (excluding July & August) from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Conservation Committee Meetings: Conservation Committee Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month at 6 pm. [No Conservation Committee Meetings are scheduled for the month of July. The November and December meetings are combined and occur the evening of the first Thursday in December.] All Sierra Club members who are interested in current conservation issues and in becoming an activist, should attend Conservation Committee Meetings. It's a great place to network with other activists, learn about local environmental issues and to work together to further our cause. We are re-energizing our conservation work by networking all our activists into a new conservation committee. Conservation Committee Meetings are held in the main floor conference room of the Historic Y, 738 N. 5th Ave., near University Blvd.
Executive Committee Meetings: Executive Committee Meetings are only open to Sierra Club members. The Executive Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month immediately following the Conservation Committee Meeting in the main floor conference room of the Historic Y at 738 N. 5th Ave., near University Blvd. [No Executive Committee Meetings are scheduled for the month of July. The November and December meetings are combined and occur the evening of the first Thursday in December.]

Thursday, June 13th - Solar Power and Reducing Energy Use are Viable Today - Russell Lowes, Rincon Group Energy chair, shows how solar panels recently have become more affordable. He reveals how to calculate your cost for solar, given the different aspects of installation, financing, and incentives for those who want to buy or lease solar rooftop systems for their homes. A blending of solar panels and energy efficiency produces the best results. Russell also will compare the current cost of solar with the costs of new fossil-fuel or nuclear-energy options. Government subsidies will be covered and Russell will address current proposals for carbon-tax options and renewable-energy stimulation in Congress.
