2011 GLRI Quality Technical Conference: Dec. 6-8

Oct 5: The 2011 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) Quality Technical Conference will be held in Chicago, on December 6-8, 2011. The primary purpose of this year's conference is to facilitate implementation of quality practices for projects being conducted under the GLRI by providing training, tools, resources, and a forum for communication among GLRI collaborators as they implement their projects. The 2011 GLRI Quality Technical Conference will provide an opportunity to work together to improve quality practices for GLRI projects and ultimately, the environment.

    The first conference day will include the meeting welcome, and plenary and technical sessions. Day two will offer a choice of two concurrent sessions: Session I will include training sessions and Session II will include a series of technical sessions on implementation of quality. The morning of conference day three will be dedicated to presentations by GLRI collaborators. The Quality Program Lead for each GLRI collaborator will present the status of quality implementation for their GLRI projects.
