June 2, 2008, West Lafayette, Ind. — The Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) is inviting farmers, agricultural advisors and wastewater utilities to attend a workshop on water quality credit trading.

The workshop will take place August 19 and 20, 2008, at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center in Troy, Ohio.

The Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC), in conjunction with the Environmental Trading Network (ETN), the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and Certified Crop Advisers, is hosting a two-day water quality credit trading workshop. This will be a detailed, intensive training program on water quality trading for agricultural operators, ag advisors, potential water quality trading aggregators and municipal wastewater facilities. Expert speakers will introduce the concepts, benefits and challenges of trading and the steps involved in developing a trading program. The training will include interactive breakout sessions to give participants specific skills to develop or participate in a trading program. Case studies will be highlighted so participants can learn from existing programs.

In addition to the two-day workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to network with each other at a social event the evening of August 19.

The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center is located outside Dayton, Ohio.  Lodging is available at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Troy, Ohio, at the reduced rate of $84 per night.  Book your room early as this rate is guaranteed only through July 18.
