Environmental Managers Roundtable, September 2014

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

On Tuesday, September 9th, NEIA will be holding its first Environmental Managers Roundtable. This session will be an opportunity for environmental managers in varying segments of the economy to network, discuss issues of common concern, and share information in a relaxed and informal setting.

The first in a series of environmental management roundtables, this initial meeting will determine the interests and needs of the group.
