Conference Topics and Speakers
Addressing the catastrophic flooding and serious water quality issues that New Jersey faces will not be possible unless these challenges are addressed at a watershed scale. This will require unprecedented coordination and cooperation across municipal and county boundaries. This 7th New Jersey Watershed Conference will offer specific strategies, tools and lessons learned to inform the development of regional approaches in New Jersey.
The Watershed Institute is a certified course provider for Continuing Legal Education credits (CLEs) and Professional Engineer credits (PEs). We will be offering NJ CEUs for attorneys, professional engineers, planners, and certified floodplain managers for applicable sessions. Check out the agenda and/or session descriptions for sessions offering Attorneys (CLEs), Professional Engineers (PEs), Planners (APA/AICP CMs) and Certified Flood Plain Managers credits. Applicable sessions will have a “CEUs Available” tag as well as the number and type of credits offered.
The Conference is providing the following CEUs depending on the sessions selected:
- CLE: 5.6 credit hours
- PE: 5 credit hours
- Planners CMs: 7.5 credit hours
- CFM: 5 credit hours
CEUs are an additional option during registration. Please note that there is an extra $30 charge for CEUs.
