EMS Basics and Aspects & Impacts Training Nov. 29

Yellow, Red and Blue Level Partners are invited to attend two free workshops from Georgia Tech in Atlanta Nov. 29. The morning session will cover the basics of an EMS, including the specific requirements for Partners. The afternoon session will look at how to identify, evaluate and manage environmental aspects and impacts. We encourage you to send two or three staff members, first-timers as well as those needing a refresher. If you are a new Yellow Level Partner, we strongly suggest you attend.
