How to Restore Civility in Public Discourse 
8:30 a.m, – 12:30 p.m.
Conference Center at Mercer County College
1200 Old Trenton Road
West Windsor, NJ 08550
The New Jersey League of Municipalities' Educational Foundation is producing this special event to educate the public and policy makers on how to restore civility in public discourse. Incivility impedes getting things done. It models destructive behavior and discourages new people from getting involved in public issues. This event will train attendees to understand why civility is important, how to recognize and constructively deal with differences and perhaps most importantly how to accomplish civility in the arena of public discourse. Details about the high-level presenters are available at www.njlmef.org Feel free to share this with your professional network. Led by FiOS 1 News political analyst Richard French, the panel of local and State Legislative leaders and subject experts will guide the audience on how to achieve the benefits civility has to offer. Attendees will learn through practical examples from both the public and private sector including how to foster civility in public discourse and how to restore civility when confronted with disruptive behaviors.  Find details and registration information at www.njlmef.org. Questions? Contact Michael Darcy at 609-695-3481 extension 116.

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 we need to put in place to retain and bolster New Jersey's defense industry. PlanSmart NJ Member: $50. Non-Profit/Government: $60. Non-Member: $85 Register here

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
