Webinars: Train, Network, and Grow!

RMS is pleased to have offered the following encore presentations of popular recent workshops, now recorded and posted. They reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of river management, and showcase the extraordinary array of expertise among RMS members and colleagues who are working toward systems that encourage prudent paths for our nation's rivers. These sessions gave attendees an opportunity to: 

  • Brush up on topics they'd heard about but had not taken the time to investigate
  • Discuss (directly or through audience chat) how to leverage our network of river professionals
  • Learn from topic experts and locate resources not available elsewhere
