Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Banking under the New Rule is the theme of the 12th National Mitigation & Ecosystem Banking Conference, May 5-8, 2009, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Conference is seeking presentations from experienced mitigation and conservation bankers, regulators, users, engineers, investors, environmental organizations, and others who have direct experience in the expanding mitigation and ecosystem banking industry. Submissions are due October 15, 2008.
Established 11 years ago as the only national conference that brings together key regulators, bankers, users and providers of services in the mitigation, conservation and ecosystem banking marketplace, the Conference is known for the quality of his hands-on participatory sessions and the networking and business opportunities it offers.
The Conference has proven to be "the" place to gain insights, explore new markets and learn from sessions such as The New Rule Workshop (its Implementation); Regulator, Banker & User Forums; Banking Primer & Stream Banking Workshops; interactive sessions featuring key players and perspectives from bankers, users and regulators; and updates on regulations, rules and litigation; plus field trips to banks in the Salt Lake City area.
The estimated 450 attendees will learn how the New Rule issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency earlier this year is affecting mitigation and ecosystem banking across the nation.
Conference supporters are major players in banking, including The Conservation Fund, the National Mitigation Banking Association, and bankers Earthmark Mitigation Services LLC, Environmental Banc & Exchange LLC, Environmental Heritage Investors LLC, Marsh Resources Inc., MMA Sustainable Land Investments, Restoration Systems LLC, Westervelt Ecological Services, The Wetlandsbank Group, and Wildlands Inc. Federal agency sponsors include the Federal Highway Administration, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
