(0:00) Jennifer Major: Okay, well, this officially begins our webinar on tribal lands and toxic releases everyone. Thank you for joining us. Welcome on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to TRI Tribal Lands webinar. My name is Jennifer Major from Ross & Associates Environmental Consulting and I'm working with EPA on this effort to increase use and awareness of the TRI among the tribal community and I'm going to be moderating the sessions as we go along today. We have a very packed agenda in just 90 minutes. We've got four great presenters today - we're very fortunate to have them with us, but I do want to keep things moving right along, so I'll just take a few minutes now to walk you through a few of the webinar logistics so that you're familiar with the format that we're using today. All attendees' lines are muted and you probably already know that through the email you received from GoToMeeting. To ask a question – and we hope that you will – at any time during today's session, you simply type the question in your question pane on your webinar dashboard, and again, you can do this at any time.
Training slides and online modules are freely available on the TRI Program Division web site. Basic and advanced modules are available where you can learn about:
Webinar Transcription 5-25-2010
(0:00) Jennifer: And we’ll make the recorded webcast and written transcript available on the chemical right to know website, so again please check that site later for that information. We’ll also be posting all the presentations, presenter biographies, resources and contact information to the site, and lastly, and we’ll go over this at the end, we do need your feedback at the close of the webinar, so you will receive a very short follow-up email from GoToWebinar, so please check your spam boxes for that, as it may end up there. But we’ll just be asking you a few questions just to get your feedback after the webinar so that we can improve future webinars.
So without delay I'd like to give a brief introduction. I'm Kelley Ann Lovelace. I know I've met several of you before. I'd like to welcome everyone to this Webinar entitled "TRI Web-based Tools: What's New and Emerging." We have six presenters, hopefully, who will speak to you today over the next few hours and their bios can be found on the chemicalright2know.org web site. Given our time limitations we will only be taking two questions per presenter and I would ask you to submit your questions in writing. And you should have an area on your screen, which allows you to do so.
This workshop will focus on the TRI report due July 1 and the Hazardous Chemical Inventory (Tier Two) report due March 1 required under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. This workshop is recommended for owners, operators, and environmental and safety personnel of facilities that handle hazardous or toxic substances. Environmental consultants, local emergency planning committees, and fire department personnel might also benefit from this workshop and are encouraged to attend. All attendees will receive the 8th edition of the Michigan Facilities’ Guide to SARA Title III, Emergency Planning, and Release Reporting published January 2010.
