I am assisting CCEHSA with sponsoring an event on EMS's.  I think that

encourage attendance because it will be fairly inexpensive and I believe 
it will be a great workshop.  See below for the save the date

$100.00.  (Refreshments and Lunch to be             provided)


Presented by WSP Environmental Strategies and Hosted by CCEHSA


The world of higher education is rapidly changing and there is a unique, 
dynamic regulatory burden impacting this sector. In response to this, 
many forward-thinking colleges and universities are advancing 
environmental management systems to ensure legal compliance and a safe, 
sustainable campus environment. 


To share experiences and knowledge in this arena, we are hosting this 
workshop and networking event with higher education representatives to 
learn about Environmental Management Systems, how they can drive 
improvement in environmental health and safety by integrating energy 
conservation, waste diversion, and natural resource stewardship elements 
with traditional programs. 


WSP Environmental Strategies will be facilitating this interactive 
dialogue which will define environmental management systems, discuss 
various methods for developing and implementing an EMS and examine how 
an EMS can optimize existing environmental, health and safety programs. 
Included in this dialogue will be:


=A7      Ideas on engaging non-EHS staff, administrators and faculty 
through an EMS

=A7      Specific case studies to demonstrate EMS successes & challenges 
in higher education

=A7      Learning exercises where we will examine & discuss your biggest 
challenges and propose practical solutions


WSP professionals have been designing, implementing and upgrading 
environmental management systems for institutions of higher learning 
since 1992.  With broad experience both in Europe and the U.S., they 
have guided several universities in the development of world-class EMS 
and SMS, and integrated these programs with their existing EHS 
compliance efforts.
