Annual Grantee Meeting

Annual Environmental Job Development All-Grantee Meeting

The Hazardous Materials Training and Research Institute (HMTRI), under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, confirmed the dates for this year’s Annual Environmental Job Development All-Grantee Meeting. The meeting will be held on October 1-2, 2012 at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Alexandria, Virginia. All grantees are strongly encouraged to attend. This meeting provides a unique opportunity to share a variety of approaches to Brownfields job training and development. The focus of the meeting is for grantees to exchange information and ideas with each other and with EPA Regional/Headquarters representatives. The goal of the meeting is to assist every grantee to develop their best possible job training program. By attending, you will be provided the following opportunities:

1.       Sharing information that will include basic program component guidelines necessary for successful completion of your program, initiatives that support and interact with Brownfields activities, key measures and expectations, partnering, and related job development program issues;
2.       Sharing project plans and implementation strategies with other grant recipients and your EPA project officer; and
3.       Sharing information on available technical resources and technical assistance sources.

This year’s event will again include an optional five-hour OSHA Safety Course prior to the All-Grantee Meeting. This safety course will be presented by the Community College Consortium for Health and Safety Training (CCCHST), and will run from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 1, 2012.

There is no fee to attend. Participants from out of town will have their lodging paid for two nights (Monday and Tuesday) through a master contract set up with the Hilton.
