The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) proudly announces an updated CEQA Series Workshop with a new title and twist. This year our workshop will continue to provide a basic understanding of the fundamentals of the California Environmental Quality Act and the State Guidelines and will include intermediate-level practice pointers and case studies. The workshop features a curriculum developed specifically for people involved in the environmental review process, including consultants, regulators, applicants, or industrial professionals, and will benefit those new to the field as well as mid-level practicing professionals. (AICP-CM credits pending). Click here to print the flyer.
