Officers Association

Winter Workshop Series

Join us for a series of workshops covering a variety of enforcement-related topics, including updates from the NCSBI and DEQ, ordinance and enforcement program development, disaster planning and recovery, case studies, litter prevention, and more. SWANA, NCSWANA, and REHS continuing education units will be available for each workshop. 

NCSWEOA will be repeating these workshop series across the state. Details about the first two workshops, in Asheville and Hickory, can be found below.

DATE:             Thursday, March 14 - 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
LOCATION:    Randolph Community College Continuing Education and Industrial Center
413 Industrial Park Avenue, Room 103, Asheboro

This workshop will focus on creating a solid waste ordinance that will provide a framework on which to build a successful environmental enforcement program. Participants will learn about the parameters of local authority. Speakers will present their own experience in developing ordinance provisions tailored to their jurisdictions. Open discussion will allow participants and speakers to focus on specific enforcement needs related to citizen complaints, illegal dumping and roadside litter, and how to address those needs in their local ordinances. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of your ordinance with you!
