The 2013 Clear Water Alabama Seminars and Field Day will be held October 8-10, 2013, at the Alabama Associated General Contractors’ Conference Center, Birmingham, Alabama. This 3-day event will consist of technical seminars and field day. The event information is posted on the Alabama Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) website in the Calendar Section.

New NRCS employees needing training and those who can earn professional development hours and work in counties that have urban expansion and construction activities are encouraged to attend. NRCS employees assisting with the Seminar and/or Field Day are authorized to attend.

Those who plan to attend should receive prior approval from their supervisor and/or ASTC-FO. No travel expenses are anticipated for those within commuting distance to Birmingham. Anyone requiring overnight travel should get prior approval from their Leadership Team supervisor. Travel budget allocations cannot be exceeded.

The success of the field day depends to a large extent upon the NRCS and the local SWCD working together to promote attendance.
