Please see the following invitation to the Erosion Control and Green Infrastructure Conference on July 12th at the iHotel.
My name is Colleen Ruhter. I am a civil/environmental engineer working in Environmental Compliance within Facilities and Services at U of I. The University is co-hosting an Erosion Control and Green Infrastructure Conference July 12 at the I-Hotel.
We are reaching out to members of the U of I community that might be interested in attending. Or who might work with others who would like to attend. As the officers of Chi Epsilon, you seem like the ideal group of people to be contacting.
The conference will cover various Erosion Control topics in the morning, and Green Infrastructure design and certification in the afternoon, with a tour of the U of I Erosion Control Research & Training Center. It is completely free, with breakfast and lunch both being served.
We hope you will be able to attend. But we also ask if you would be willing to share the attached poster and/or print and hang the poster where you think it might catch the most attention. Although it’s summer break and there aren’t nearly as many people on campus, we still hope to catch a good group of attendees. Registration (as well as the agenda and presenter bios) is available at www.ccstormwater.org/events until June 28.
I know that when I was a civil engineering student (and a member of Chi Epsilon at the University of Evansville), and as young engineer just out of school, conferences like these were invaluable to both my learning and my networking. I hope that some of the members of Chi Epsilon will be able to make this a part of their own experience.
If you have any questions about the poster or the conference, please let me know.
I hope to see you and some of your fellow students there!
