Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management

This EBC Rhode Island Program will feature the Office Chiefs who report to Terrence (Terry) Gray at the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM). Each of the office chiefs will give their perspectives on the five most critical issues facing their respective offices.  With much of the RIDEM decision making taking place at the office level, this EBC Rhode Island Program provides a unique opportunity to understand the challenges and concerns of the leadership of the RIDEM Offices.

Join us for an informative and lively conversation with the key RIDEM decision makers as they discuss ongoing and future programs strategies and challenges.

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

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (4.0 training contact hours).  Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
