TRAINING WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES

Please register now and encourage permitting staff, who would benefit from this opportunity, to register as well! Our goal is to have both experienced and fairly new permitting staff, those with at least 3+ years of permit experience, from all MARAMA agencies attend and learn from each other as well as from knowledgeable presenters.  We expect to not only have presentations, but several panels and roundtable discussions for agencies to interact among themselves and with National and Regional EPA staff.
