For the second year in a row, the Summit received a record-breaking number of submittals. 266 sessions and papers were proposed by you and and your colleagues. During the holidays, 8 topic teams with a total of almost 45 volunteer peer reviewers will be reviewing these submittals and weaving together a total of 42 breakout sessions. Final decisions will be made during the week of January 24, 2005 and we will notify you in very early February.

For those of you who want to get the most out of your time in Chicago, we are lining up some fabulous learning opportunities including site visits and workshops.

As of today, the following local field trips have been arranged for Monday, April 11 (Thanks to our outstanding local host committee.):

** Bus tour of Chicago's Southeast Industrial Corridor including a visit of restored Brownfield sites, redevelopment of open lands and a walk-through of Lansing Cleaners a national recognized CO2 dry cleaning facility.

** Visit the Chicago Center for Green Technology

The following is this weeks featured workshop:

All others must apply by March 1. Please call NPPR at (202) 299-9701 for more information.
