Tasty treats and RCRA training in Tempe

Our next 5-Day RCRA seminar takes us to the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel in the Phoenix metro area, March 5-9, 2018. Take in our expert training from the comfort of exclusive Herman Miller chairs, feast on unlimited snacks from the “snack shack” just outside the meeting room, and enjoy the Arizona sunshine.

After your training, treat yourself to a night out on Mill Avenue, the heart of what’s happening in Tempe. Or, take in some Spring Training baseball, which can be found all over the Phoenix area. The spring homes of the Angels, A’s, Cubs, and Giants are all within eight miles of the hotel. We’ll see you there.

Bats help reduce pesticide use
