With regret, the Board of the LSRPA accepted the resignation of Julian Davies of Sovereign Consulting, Inc. from his seat on the Board. Julian was a founding member of the Association and his  energetic commitment to the Association has been extraordinary.

With pleasure, the Board of the LSRPA is appointing Kathi Stetser of GEI Consultants, Inc.  to fill the remainder of Julian’s term of office.  Kathi has been an active member of the Association’s Steering Committee; has  energetically served as Co-Chair of one of the  Association’s  most active committees, the Regulatory Outreach Committee,  since its inception; and is a regular representative of the Association at  the Licensing Board meetings. Join us in welcoming Kathi to the Board of Trustees.

 

 
Approaches To Resolving Differences In Professional Judgment In Site Remediation

Presented by CIANJ and Montclair State's Continuing Education Program for Environmental Professionals
Friday, February 27, 2015 from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Montclair, NJ

Location:  University Hall at MSU in Montclair, NJ.  

The half-day workshop will include a networking breakfast and lunch


There has been an increase in cases where licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs) have conflicted with one another on decisions made on either the same site or adjoining sites, causing delays in cleanups, confusion and possible litigation.  The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum where interested parties can discuss the issues and more importantly, outline approaches or methodologies to eliminate or minimize those differences.

Continuing education credits will be sought for PEs, LSRPs and attorneys.
