For those of you who were not able to attend the ACR EPP conference in Portland, the mid-levels discussed ways to keep in better contact and provide support to one another between the annual conferences. An ongoing way to stay in touch is through a mid-level practitioner’s peer learning team. This is an initiative to connect professionals at similar stages in their careers to discuss foundational theories, new ideas or strategies, challenges and best practices. Through teleconferences, webinars and in-person meetings in coordination with the ACR EPP annual conference, we can help one another to grow as practitioners.
On May 25, the morning after the EPP Conference, a small group of EPP members (and one spouse) rose early to take a run up nearby Sabino Canyon in honor of deceased colleague Rob Williams, who was a dedicated tri-athlete. Laura Sneeringer, recepient of the 2010 Rob Williams Award for Emerging Environment & Public Policy Leaders was among the group. It was a beautiful morning and a fitting way to remember Rob's love of endurance sports (click Read More for photo).
