2022 CHAPTER 37 - EDUCATION REPORT
Understanding Environmental Course 603 will be held at our next joint meeting with Chapter 5 at Lake of the Ozarks, tentatively in November. Next year we will be holding 3 more classes, dates TBD. Keeping in mind everyone's health and safety we hope to be able to host all classes in person. We are also looking at "expanding the classroom" to areas around St. Louis that we may not have hosted in before, so we can get more participation from some of our members who have so graciously traveled into the city in the past.
**If your organization is interested in hosting a class at your facility, please feel free to contact Kristin Bauman.
We are still taking suggestions on classes that you may need. Please continue to send me emails with classes you are interested in either to further your knowledge or to continue earning your designations. Kim Gross has offered to help with creating a personalized plan for each of us to help highlight our own needs and clarify classes needed. Using that information, Kristin can schedule classes that can best benefit the chapter. The credentialing concierge at IRWAonline.org is still a great resource.
