WHAT: Alabama Corps of Engineers Partnering Workshop, hosted by the Mobile and Nashville Districts
WHEN: 14 – 15 OCTOBER 2009
WHERE: MARRIOTT CONVENTION CENTER, PRATTVILLE, AL
WHY: Water resource issues are of great interest to stakeholders across the State of Alabama. This two-day Partnering Workshop will bring city, state, and county governments, non-profit organizations, regional planners, engineering firms, and other interested parties together in an interactive and “interest” focused collaborative environment. This workshop focuses on the interests within the State of Alabama, while providing information on the various “tools” the Corps of Engineers has in providing assistance for solving their water resource issues. The operation of Corps reservoirs is not a topic for this conference, but all other opportunities will be explained and the participants immersed in both information and the personal contacts of key Corps District staff to pursue the opportunities realized from this event. This is a MUST ATTEND EVENT for water resource professionals in the State of Alabama or adjoining states who seek to find partners who can effectively bring their “visions to reality”.
