The COVID-19 pandemic forced the Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) Program to postpone in-person Consultants’ Day 2020 events in Stevens Point and Pewaukee. However, those same topics (and more) will be presented in a monthly webinar series, the first of which will be held on July 15th.
The new series is modeled after the RR Program’s Issues & Trends monthly conference calls and is now simply referred to as the new Issues & Trends.
The upcoming Issues & Trends presentations will be held using Zoom web conferencing. There is no cost to participate, but Zoom will request that you register for each event by supplying your name and email address.

Due to Gov. Evers’s COVID-19 Safer at Home order, the Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) Program’s Consultants’ Day 2020 conferences in Stevens Point and Pewaukee are postponed indefinitely. The health and safety of our customers, colleagues and staff is our top concern.
If you have already registered for either event – April 29 in Stevens Point or May 13 in Pewaukee – you will soon receive a full refund from our registration partners at UW-Stevens Point.
The RR Program is considering future dates or alternative delivery methods for these events. Information will be shared via the RR Report as soon as it becomes available.
