Working Committees

We are sorry to say that the SFIREG Joint Working Committee meeting coming up September 17-18, 2018 is cancelled due to concerns related to Hurricane Florence.  The committee chairs will work on a plan to follow up after the storm has subsided and we’ll let you know what to expect.
In the meantime,  if you have reservations at the Marriott Residence Inn under the hotel block, please cancel them if you aren’t coming:
If you have flights booked, please look for a travel advisory from your airline letting you know that a waiver is in place for travel to DCA (or wherever you are traveling into) and cancel your flight then.  If you are booked on an airline and don’t see a waiver and have a deadline to cancel, then do that instead.
Safe wishes to all who will be impacted by the storm!

Next Joint Working Committee Meeting is September 17-18, 2018 at U.S.EPA in Crystal City, VA

SFIREG has two Working Committees.

The Pesticide Operations and Management (POM) Working Committee is focused on registration, certification, and enforcement related pesticide issues of national or regional importance.  POM Committee Members

The Environmental Quality Issues (EQI) Working Committee is involved with pesticide issues related to water quality, threatened and endangered species, human health and the environment, risk assessments, and technical aspects of the implementation of pesticide programs.  EQI Committee Members

The committees may meet separately or jointly, as the issues overlap committee responsibilities.
