We are pleased to announce that registration and sponsorship is now open for our 2016 Making Environmental Connections Conference on April 21, 2016 at Central Penn College Conference Center.  We are excited to host the Secretary of PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Secretary of PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources as well as many other guest speakers.

Our conference is open to professionals and students.  Both men and women are welcome as members and conference attendees.  We offer educational and networking components to this Conference and believe that it gives our members and friends a unique conference experience.  We are also offering a scholarship poster contest for students.  A reduced registration fee for students participating in the contest is offered.  Students must be present at the conference and for the awards ceremony to be eligible to win.  Conference attendees will be afforded the opportunity to review and vote on the posters.  Details are in the attached flyer.

This year we are offering 4 Professional Development Hours for those who attend the conference for the full day.  These PDHs are available for Pennsylvania PE, PG or PLS ONLY.  You must indicate if a certificate will be needed at the time of registration.

Sponsorship opportunity as well as corporate and individual membership information is also attached.   Please review these flyers to see if a sponsorship or corporate membership may be a good fit for your company or organization.
