2007 AAPA Quality Partnership Initiative Third Annual Project Managers Workshop
December 5, 2007 Palm Beach, FL
This year’s QPI Project Managers Workshop was hosted by the Port of Palm Beach with a timely agenda focused on the regulatory process. Primary topics included the permitting process (Day 1) and dealing with resuspension of sediments (Day 2). This workshop format allowed full discussion of topics with participation by all attendees. In past years these “roll up your sleeves” workshops have given Corps and port industry project managers an opportunity to meet, discuss and begin resolution of long standing issues and misunderstandings about processes and programs employed by the various offices and departments, both government and industry.
