Sessions during week-long EGLE compliance training series to cover air, waste and water regulations among other topics to aid environmental professionals

Logo for Michigan Environmental Compliance Week, Sept. 21 to 25, 2020The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy’s biennial Michigan Environmental Compliance Conference (MECC) will move to a virtual format this year and take place over an entire week — all online and free — from September 21 to 25.

"We are excited to offer this virtual learning experience to help businesses, communities, and environmental professionals protect Michigan's environment by learning how to comply with the environmental regulations that apply to them," says Jim Ostrowski, of EGLE's Training and Outreach Unit. "Compliance Week will provide an exciting alternative to the highly popular MECC, which we are unable to hold this year due to COVID-19 precautions. It will offer both technical and introductory sessions and meetings. Over 80 EGLE staff from around the state are lined up to present on a wide range of topics and to help answer questions."

Michigan Environmental Compliance Week will feature an extensive webinar curriculum, including sessions that focus on how to comply with air, waste, and water regulations, as well as sessions covering environmental remediation and emergency planning/response.

In addition, the event will feature:

  • Live streamed events with EGLE Director Liesl Clark and EGLE staff.
  • Online focus groups with industry sectors.
  • Daily tips and guidance.
  • Opportunities to meet virtually with compliance staff for Q&A.
  • Conversations with industry leaders and stakeholders.
  • Opportunities for one-on-one compliance assistance.
  • Virtual networking through Whova event app.
