2020 Events Calendar

All CCOM Events Are Free & Open To the Public Unless Otherwise Noted


When celebrating such a milestone as a 50th Anniversary, it is a time to look to the past and consider the future. Over the last few months we have lauded the monumental achievements of CCOM’s early years; now we return to the challenges that we are addressing today and discuss how they will continue to evolve as we enter the next 50 years.

Starting this September, we will be facilitating a series of informational 1-hour webinars on key environmental issues affecting Montauk and the East End, specifically highlighting CCOM’s work within our three leadership initiatives: water quality, coastal resiliency, and environmental sustainability.

The webinars will be conducted by CCOM staff and experts in their respective fields with public participation. If you can’t make the scheduled time, don’t worry – they will all be recorded for future viewing!
