How SBEAPs work with their EPA Liaisons - Each EPA region assigns a portion of one position to work with the state programs as a liaison between EPA and the states. Unfortunately, several regions have not made these assignments, resulting in decreased communication between the SBEAPs and EPA. So what can your state do if you do not have a liaison or want to work more with your liaison? Tune in to learn more. This training was recorded Jan. 26, 2016. 

Conducting a Site Visit: Similarities, Differences and Lessons Learned - During this webinar, three speakers describe their respective SBEAP state programs and procedures for conducting site visits at small businesses.
