What keeps the leadership of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) up at night? Find out at EBC’s annual Rhode Island leadership program featuring Deputy Director Susan Forcier and the chiefs of key RIDEM offices. Deputy Director Forcier’s keynote presentation will provide the 1,000 foot view of what is new at RIDEM and introduce each chief and their program responsibilities. The office chiefs will hold a series of brief presentations that get into the details, with the chiefs discussing the hot topics that are holding their attention in 2023. With much of the decision making at RIDEM taking place at the office level, this program provides a unique opportunity to understand the challenges and concerns of the leadership of the offices.

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

The program will conclude with a robust panel discussion.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the program.
