GBA’s 2021 Brownfield Seminar
Call for Abstracts
The brownfield redevelopment community has come to embrace the Georgia Brownfield Association’s Brownfield Seminar as an instrumental forum for discussions about the environmental, financial, regulatory, and community factors that guide brownfield remediation and redevelopment. Each year, GBAs brings together information, experience, and research to provide Seminar participants a greater knowledge and ability to help revitalize their community.
The 2020 GBA Brownfield Seminar was successful beyond what we could have hoped for or anticipated given the impact of COVID and the need to postpone and pivot to a virtual event. Despite these modifications, members enjoyed joining via Zoom and hearing from an incredible slate of national, local and regional presenters. We were pleased to also have received approval from the State Bar of Georgia for participants to earn six hours of CLE credits. This was a first for our organization, and we hope to continue to offer this value-added opportunity to attorneys as well as members of other professions in need of CEUs.
2021 Call for Abstracts
We now are accepting abstracts for the seventh annual Georgia Brownfield Seminar. We do not yet know what 2021 will look like in terms of our ability to host in person, virtually, or both, but we intend to make the most of our seventh annual event and are requesting abstracts and proposals for presentations to be submitted. Abstracts are due Feb. 19, 2021 and can be submitted via email to Jennifer Jezyk at Jennifer@HLStrategy.com.
This seminar will provide quality education opportunities with a wide range of participants, including leading development, legal, engineering, risk management, economic development, and other professionals throughout Georgia and beyond with a shared interest in cleaning and redeveloping contaminated properties and revitalizing surrounding areas around the state.
