Three Verdantas experts are slated as presenters in the upcoming Brownfields 2022 Conference. This nationally focused conference is set to take place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, August 16-19th.
Brownfields 2022 features over 120 panels, roundtables, and topic talks where attendees can learn directly from experts in the field and interact with federal, state, and local decision-makers. In these sessions, speakers will discuss new practices, share success stories, and stimulate new ideas.
