Webinars: Lake Champlain Flood Management

The International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board would like to invite you to join us for our upcoming series of technical webinars. Each week starting on Thursday November 5th, the Board will host a webinar on one of eight key topics being investigated under the Study. An in-depth presentation will be provided by one of the study members involved in the research on a particular topic. The presentation will be followed by a Q and A period, during which participants will be able to ask subject experts questions about their work.

The one-hour webinars will be offered during morning sessions in English and afternoon sessions in French. Please consult the schedule for the upcoming webinars below.
