The U.S. EPA Community Involvement Training Conference was held annually from 1998-2007 in various locations throughout the United States. In 2007, the conference moved to a two-year cycle. The last conference was held in July 2013 in Boston, MA. The conference caters to EPA staff, as well as Agency stakeholders and partners, who plan and implement environmental community involvement and public communication, education, and stewardship programs. Attendees gain an opportunity to learn from and share experiences with each other, as well as hear and learn from other stakeholders through:
- Classroom-style training
- Case studies
- Panel sessions
- Group discussions
- Information sharing
- Interactive exercises
- Field trips
- Networking opportunities
- Poster and multimedia presentations
The conference also provides a platform for all parties to discuss successes, obstacles, and lessons learned, as well as an opportunity to cultivate cross-program/cross-agency relationships.
