The 2013 EPA Community Involvement Training Conference: The Next Generation of Community Involvement will be held July 30 – August 1, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. This dynamic conference seeks to both inform and train EPA staff as well as Agency stakeholders and partners in best practices to enhance community involvement. In 2011, the conference brought together more than 450 community involvement practitioners.
The three-day conference features plenary sessions with guest speakers, topical discussions, multiple 90-minute information sessions, and dozens of engaging and interactive training sessions. Additionally, there will be field trips demonstrating effective community involvement and cooperative conservation efforts in the Boston area, a poster session, exhibits, a technology demonstration area showcasing new tools, technology, and software, and a variety of networking opportunities. Presentation and training proposals for the conference are being accepted through February 22, 2013.
