How You'll Benefit
The symposium had a holistic approach about the environment by embracing issues related to policies, regulations, current and projected environmental issues, research and statistical work, strategies and solutions.
Begun in 1989, Capt. Ron Erchul, VMI professor, received grant money for an environmental research project which required a conference presentation of the findings. From these humble beginnings, Capt. Erchul created a state-wide event where all sectors of the environmental industry gather on a level playing field of networking, best-practices, information and research sharing, and a bit of fun!
Starting in 2009, VMI established the Center for Leadership and Ethics staffed with program and event professionals. In 2019, the Environment Virginia Symposium celebrated 30 years. To learn more about this event and its history, see the anniversary video on our YouTube channel.
