ITEP Conferences

The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals strives to develop conferences and forums that provide tribal environmental professionals with opportunities to network with peers, learn about federal environmental rules and policy, get exposed to cutting edge environmental monitoring and clean-up information and technology, and work collaboratively with federal counterparts at USEPA and other federal agencies to improve environmental protection of tribal lands throughout the country.

These national tribal environmental conferences are an excellent way to share, present and learn from one another. To learn more please visit our conference websites below.
