Proposals for sessions and trainings for the TLEF are due THIS Friday, May 19! We really want to hear your stories, your successes and challenges, new approaches you’ve taken that might help others, updates on projects you’ve been working on, or anything else that might inspire and help your colleagues working on the front line. We prioritize selecting proposals that are specific to Superfund/Federal Facilities, solid waste, USTs, emergency response, and brownfields. We love seeing proposals that may straddle various topics, or deal with over-arching challenges like the climate crisis, habitat restoration, environmental justice, or other areas that affect these core environmental media. If you have something to share, don’t delay!
Go to the 2023 TLEF Website and click on the “Call for Proposals” tab to access the proposal form.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s TLEF – whether you attend in person or virtually!
