How the 2016 National Watershed/ Stormwater Conference Works

As a registrant, you can choose to register on-line or in one of three hub locations. Spots for both of these are limited.


Two Ways to Attend the Conference…


As an on-line registrant, you will be able to:

  • Watch the nationally broadcast portions of the website from your computer
  • Ask questions online through a chat


If you register at one of the three hub locations, you will be able to:

  • Watch the nationally broadcast portions of the website with your peers and other registrants
  • Be part of local discussions or presentations of how these issues relate locally or regionally
  • Network live with local speakers and peers and sponsors
  • Ask questions live
  • Receive complimentary lunch (the most important part of the day).

More than 500 registrants are expected to “attend” the conference either in person or on-line. All registrants will listen to the nationally broadcast portions of the webcast. In-person registrants will have the opportunity to listen to local presentations and participate in discussions about how the topics affect their community, locality, and/ or region.

Professional Development Hours/CEUs

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer 8 Professional Development Hours (.8 CEUs) for this conference if attending at a hub location (8 contact hours, each earning 0.10 of a CEU). Attendance at all conference technical sessions is required to obtain the PDHs. A sign in/sign out sheet will be provided at each hub location to track attendance. The Center will provide a certificate to any attendee that requests one detailing the number of Professional Development Hours (PDHs) earned at the conference.

For those attending online, the software can only track the actual person who signs on, so a sign in/sign out sheet will be required if more than one person is attending to get a certificate. That sign in/sign out sheet will need to be provided to the Center at in order to meet document retention policies. The Center will provide a certificate to any attendee that requests one detailing the number of Professional Development Hours (PDHs) earned at the conference.

While our training programs are developed with the International Association for Continuing Education and Training criteria in mind, the varying nature of certification requirements for each state means that we cannot guarantee that CEUs will be awarded. Upon request, the Center can provide some documentation to help participants obtain credit for attending the conference, but participants are responsible for determining whether CEUs will be awarded based on the policies of their local certifying boards. Information on obtaining a CEU certificate for this conference will be provided on the first day of the conference at registration.
