This Week's Highlights

Workshops

Apart from facilitating or providing formal training, NEIA also organizes workshops from time time on issues of current interest for environmental professionals.

These seminars are either issue or skills based, and typically involve roundtable input from subject experts. These workshops provide an excellent opportunity for environmental professionals to learn or contribute to best practices, and engage their peers from multiple backgrounds and industries in discussions on topics of mutual interest.

Workshops are driven by the expressed needs and interests of its members. If you would like to suggest a topic for a NEIA workshop, or would like to get involved in helping to organize one, please contact us.
