ANJEC Road Shows
Reserve a date for your environmental commission’s Road Show!
A Road Show will help your commission members be effective leaders in natural resource protection by addressing specific questions and issues of concern.
ANJEC will prepare an individual workshop for your environmental commission with your choice of one or two topics, time and location. Workshops will not be scheduled for July, August or December.
The cost of a Road Show is $220, which covers unlimited enrollment. Why not share the cost with other groups or towns? Invite your local officials, boards, commissions and residents.
A Road Show can cover one or two topics, including those listed below or any of your choice.
- Basic Commission Operations
