2006 Community Involvment Conference and Training
General Conference Information
The U.S. EPA's 2006 Community Involvement Conference and Training was held June 27–30, 2006, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, along the shore of Lake Michigan.
This dynamic conference brought together public participation and community involvement professionals from EPA and its federal, state, tribal, and local partners. The conference offered participants original, engaging, and interactive presentations focusing on ways that government can interact with communities to brew something truly impressive: achieving environmental results through community involvement. Presenters representing a wide variety of practitioner groups shared how they involve communities in environmental protection through partnerships, stewardship, engagement, outreach, and education. Nearly 400 people attended this year’s conference.
The conference included several plenary sessions and dozens of concurrent sessions, as well as field trips, exhibits, two poster sessions, evening activities, and many networking opportunities. In addition, several optional four- or eight-hour training workshops were offered.
