Educational Opportunities (free webinar, etc.)

The world of construction stormwater is changing and techniques for effectively manging construction stormwater runoff are getting better every day.  We know that if we aren’t paying attention and not intentionally improving, we could easily be left behind.  Or worse, we could unnecessarily risk our client or employer’s time, money and reputation.  Or, we could miss out on opportunities to improve the quality of our Nation’s waters.

Fortunately, we are working at a time where information is more easily accessed than ever before.  The internet; access to experts through email and social media; and the many educational events that are available in most places at most any time of the year make learning easy.

In addition to providing international leadership for our industry, IECA is one fantastic provider of education and training.  IECA is continually trying to improve its delivery of quality teaching.  One current effort involves a focus on improving the quality of presenters at IECA’s Environmental Connection meetings (the IECA annual conference – EC13 will be the next one).

IECA is offering a free webinar on the topic of intentional and effective presenting.  I will be interviewed by Education Director Jimmy Eanes.  After answering Jimmy’s questions, the floor will be opened to your questions.  Jimmy will focus on how I plan, prepare and deliver my presentations.  You can ask anything you want.

Space is limited and is filling up fast for the August 22 webinar.  Please register quickly if you are interested.

Also, for those of you in the Southeast US, there are a few other opportunities for networking, gaining knowledge, gaining professional certification, earning continuing education credit, and simply sharpening your saw.

In addition to these excellent events, you can also stay current and keep your mind engaged by regularly visiting StormwaterTools.com.  Better yet, sign up to receive website updates and let us do the work of delivering content right to your computer.  Brief articles and information are posted every week.  You can unsubscribe at any time and we’ll still remain friends. Enter your name and email address at the upper right corner of this page.

Your work, and how you go about it matter.  Now, go get better!
