“Practice, Policy & New Emerging Markets” is the theme of the 7th National Mitigation & Conservation Banking Conference next March 3-5 in New Orleans, with the Cajun venue offering conference participants first-hand experience with Louisiana’s unique perspective on banking.
Interactive sessions at the nation’s hands-on conference for mitigation and conservation banking will range from how-to sessions to panels on new markets such as water quality trading, stormwater credits, carbon sequestration and NOx credits. Technical banking issues, wetlands science, alternatives to banking, and the newest information on legislation and industry events will be discussed. And a continuation of last year’s Regulators’ Forum facilitated by the Corps.
Presentations – and ideas for sessions – are welcomed from experienced mitigation and conservation bankers, regulators, engineers, bank users, consultants, bonding firms, venture capitalists, nonprofits who maintain banks, public interest groups and others experienced in the industry. Ideas, comments and summaries of presentations (approximately 300 words tailored to one of the topics listed on www.mitigationbankingconference.com; or call 800. 726.4853) must be submitted to cbahler@erols.com or faxed to 703.548.6299 by Sept.12.
