Call for Presentations

The EPA Quality Staff is pleased to announce the 2009 Quality Management Conference, continuing a 28-year tradition of addressing environmental issues through the exploration of advancements in quality management. The conference will take place May 12-14, 2009, in San Antonio, Texas. Registration is now open.

The theme of this year's conference is "Quality…a River Flowing with Opportunities."  As we meet new challenges and expectations, the quality paradigm is evolving.  This presents unprecedented opportunities to apply quality practices not only to our traditional data and information, but also to our products and services, from concept to implementation.  For our conference, we are soliciting abstracts that will demonstrate these opportunities. 

Abstract submissions will be considered on the basis of content, compatibility with the theme, and available number of speaking time slots.
