Click here for a DRAFT Training Agenda that has information on the topics that will be covered each day.  This year Day 1 will focus on Agriculture, Day 2 on Chapter 102, and Day 3 on Chapter 105.  Updates to the agenda will be available as session times are finalized, presenters are confirmed, and other details are worked out. A short session for new technicians (with 2 or less years’ experience) is scheduled at the beginning of each day to provide an overview of the programs to be discussed during that day.  Note that on day 1 and 2 these sessions will take place before the general sessions begin. New technicians should plan to check-in at the registration desk early, before attending the session. PROJECT SPOTLIGHT:  We are considering having table space available for districts and others to highlight projects and to share ideas and techniques.  Tables will be available in the conference center lobby for your display (pictures, drawings, whatever) of projects relating to Chapters 102 and 105.  Let me know if you are interested in sharing information on one (or more) of your projects and would like table space.   Question or comments about the meeting can be directed to Jill Whitcomb at DEP, or 717-772-5668 or Terry Fisher at PACD, or 717-728-7223.
