2020 Brownfield Seminar
Time & Location

About the event
GBA is hosting its sixth annual Georgia Brownfield Seminar, providing a forum for discussions about the environmental, financial, regulatory, and community factors that guide brownfield remediation and redevelopment. GBA will bring together information, experience, and research to provide Seminar participants a greater knowledge and ability to help revitalize their community.
UPDATE: The health and safety of our members and partners has always been a top priority for our organization. After tremendous review and discussion, we have made the decision to pivot our 2020 Brownfield Seminar to a virtual format as a result of the increasing impact COVID is having in our state and beyond. Please plan to join our Zoom webinar on Oct. 6 & 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Participants: This seminar will provide quality education opportunities with a wide range of participants, including leading development, legal, engineering, risk management, economic development, and other professionals throughout Georgia and beyond with a shared interest in cleaning and redeveloping contaminated properties and revitalizing surrounding areas around the state.
Presentations: We are pleased to share our 2020 GBA Brownfield Seminar line-up, to be presented via Zoom on October 6-7, 2020. While we have pivoted to a virtual format, we are excited to offer the same great quality, educational program you have come to expect at this annual event. We’ll be sharing additional details on these presentations and additional presenters – and stay tuned for the announcement of our exciting keynote speakers!
