NAEP Conference Committee

The Conference Committee is committed to ensuring the continued successful planning, implementation, and conduct of NAEP’s Annual Conferences well into the future.  This committee is led by Rona Spellecacy and is comprised of two parts: the Permanent Conference Committee and the Annual Conference Committee.  The leaders and members of the Conference Committee work together to successfully plan and run each Annual Conference. 

The Permanent Conference Committee assists NAEP by planning the location for future conferences, making recommendations to ensure NAEP’s Annual Conference maintains its high professional standards and integrity, and interfacing with the NAEP Board of Directors to promote their engagement in the conference planning process.  The Annual Conference Committee focuses on ensuring that the Annual Conference is technically current, educational, and interesting to the NAEP membership as well as the environmental professions at large.

The 2018 Annual Conference Committee is interested in hearing from NAEP members who would like to assist in the planning of the conference.  The conference will be held March 11 – 14, 2018 in Tacoma, Washington.  To view the most current conference information please visit the 2018 conference page by clicking HERE
