EPA Call for Proposals for 2011 Public Engmt Conf, due Feb 18

The US Environmental Protection Agency has announced its 2011 Community Involvement Training Conference from July 19-21 in Arlington, Va.

This year's conference theme is "Community Involvement in the 21st Century: Embracing Diversity, Expanding Engagement, Utilizing Technology."  According to the conference call for proposals,"Through this theme, we not only want to showcase community involvement as it is, but also how it is evolving, and what steps may be taken to expand its effectiveness through both existing and new technologies and techniques. We intend to accomplish this by focusing on three key areas—Embracing Diversity, Expanding Engagement and Utilizing Technology—to expand and improve EPA’s efforts to educate, communicate, engage, and partner, in an open and transparent manner, with those who are impacted by environmental issues and concerns."

Proposals are due on Friday, February 18th.  Click on this link to learn more about the conference and the call for proposals.
