Recorded Sessions from the 2010 TRI and Environmental Conditions in Communities National Conference

2010 Conference Session Recordings

At this year’s conference, all of the conference sessions were recorded using GoToMeeting Webinar software. This was a pilot project and we learned a great deal from this experience. Please note that the recordings are not perfect. To keep files sizes down it was necessary to compromise resolution so the visuals are sometimes fuzzy, the audio quality is better in some recordings than others, and the audio for one presentation was not captured.

Below are links to the recordings of the sessions. The files are 30 to 180 minutes in length and include one or two conference sessions. Individual speaker start times are listed in brackets next to each speaker name. The start times allow you to scroll to the presentation you would like to listen to by utilizing the slider bar at the bottom of the media player.

We are interested in hearing your views on the value of having these recordings. This will help us determine whether or not we should record the sessions at the 2012 Training Conference.
