Conference on the Impact of the Defense Industry on New Jersey

8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Enterprise Center at Burlington County College  
Mt. Laurel, NJ
The US military is the second largest employer in the state (after only the state itself) and is critical to the state's economy. The Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst alone boasts 44,000 jobs spread over 42,000 acres in Burlington and Ocean Counties. JBMDL's economic impact is a whopping and arguably irreplaceable $7.9 billion annually. And yet planners, economists and policy wonks rarely consider policies that may be needed to support this important sector of New Jersey's economy. This PlanSmart NJ conference will bring together experts for a half-day event to discuss what policies are working and what policies are needed to retain and bolster New Jersey's defense industry. PlanSmart NJ Member: $50. Non-Profit/Government: $60. Non-Member: $85 Register here

Building a Sustainable Infrastructure After Sandy
A NJ Spotlight Conference
8:45 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Trenton War MemorialLunch will be served/Seating is limited 
Hurricane Sandy was a wake-up call to New Jersey, one that the state's electric utilities and water companies have heeded. But as they move ahead with plans to build a more robust, reliable power grid and water infrastructure, what options are being considered and what will be its price tag? The conference will tackle those and other tough questions. NJ Spotlight's first extended-format event, this all-day conference gives panelists and participants the time they need to delve into details. Former NJ Gov. James Florio will be the guest speaker.

Eastern Regional Meeting - Society for Petroleum Engineers of PA
Pittsburgh, Pa

Over the past 5 years since the last ERM was held in Pittsburgh the basin has grown considerably to accommodate the explosion of the Marcellus shale and more recently, its older brother, the Utica shale. The result of this is the rich legacy of experience that was already present in the basin is now armed with access to and the application for the latest technology for oil and gas field development. This has shifted our basin from being a mere ‘user’ of technology to being a true ‘developer’ of technology. We have also seen the industry embrace the added environmental challenges of the area and work through solutions that benefit the communities in which we operate. The theme of the 2013 Eastern Regional Meeting is appropriately named “Bridging Experience with Technology” and Pittsburgh will be the perfect venue to share these realized successes to others in the basin and to showcase them to those operating in similar unconventional basins outside of the area. More information

Calculation of the amount, depth, duration, and timing of water anticipated in a constructed wetland is an essential element for preparing functional wetland designs. The single biggest mistake in botched wetland construction projects is failure to understand the amount and seasonal distribution of water over time. Learn about depth, duration and timing of water, and how to calculate and anticipate hydrologic patterns before your wetland is constructed! More information
