NASDA regional workshop at NPPR spring conference

Hi everybody.

I Just wanted to let you know about a workshop that the National
Association of State Development Agencies (NASDA)  and NPPR are sponsoring
at NPPR's spring conference in Cincinnati.  In an effort to strengthen ties
between State Development Agencies (trade promotion, business development
centers, etc..) and the pollution prevention community, NASDA and NPPR are
sponsoring a one day workshop to bring members of these groups together and
explore opportunities for partnerships both domestically and
internationally to promote P2.

The idea is to give State Development Agencies (SDA's), many of whom assist
those in the environmental industry, a chance to learn about P2 and P2
programs.  Also, P2'ers from both the public and private sector can learn
about SDAs' domestic activities and export assistance programs. 

The program is still being shaped at the moment but there will be one
session discussing pollution prevention strategies and pollution prevention
assistance programs.  Also, someone from NASDA will discuss state
development activities relevant to P2 and discuss the Environmental
Technology fund, designed to help U.S. based vendors of environmental
technologies enter the Asian market-place.  Also, we plan to have one of
our Asian delegates to the Cincinnati conference discuss environmental
conditions and the Asian market for P2 technologies.  This will be followed
by a facilitated discussion on partnership opportunities.   I wanted to let
each of you know about the workshop and invite you to participate. 

The workshop is scheduled for 9-4pm on Tuesday April 28th
Location: Hyatt Regency
Fee: $50 (lunch included)

The workshop is open invitation to our members but space is limited.  
NASDA would like to keep attendence around 80-100 (half NASDA folks, half
P2'ers).   Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.  Please contact
Michele Russo to register for the event. (same  contact info)

Hope to see you there,
