This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Annual Tribal/EPA Conference. We are honored to serve as co-sponsors of this historic event. For the past 21 years, the annual conference has been an important opportunity for partnership and ongoing collaboration between Tribes, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal, state, and local agencies. The annual conference has provided the Tribes with valuable training, networking opportunities, and resource-sharing. We look forward to another great conference. The Tribal/EPA conference will be held in Lemoore, CA on October 22 – 24, 2013. The Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) meeting and RTOC Tribal Caucus will be held on September 21 at the TACHI PALACE Casino & Resort.
