This EBC Rhode Island Leadership program will feature several top officials from the RI Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC). The CRMC is RI’s management and regulatory agency that is responsible for the protection, preservation, development, and where possible the restoration of the coastal areas of the state. It provides the planning and management of RI’s coastal regions by formulating policies and plans and coordinating with local, state, and federal governments. Sea level rise, coastal flooding, hazard mitigation, off shore wind power, salt pond restoration, and special area management planning are just a few of the initiatives under CRMC’s jurisdiction. And under certain conditions, power-generating plants and solid waste disposal facilities come under its authority as well.

There will be adequate time for Q & A from the audience.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
