NERC Launches Virtual Education & Market Development Sponsorship Program

With the switch to virtual events and meetings, it has become challenging for companies and initiatives to be visible and accessible. NERC has launched a new program to provide organizations with an opportunity to be recognized and seen by a national audience of interested consumers: The NERC Webinar Series Sponsorship Program. Sponsorships will support the cost of planning and delivering the webinars.

As an ongoing, free-of-charge service, NERC delivers national webinars that address issues of critical interest to the sustainability and market development community. The number of webinar participants has grown to as many as 1,000 from around the US and Canada. All webinar recordings and presentations are available and archived on NERC’s website.

There are three sponsorship levels with varying benefits.

Webinar Series

NERC has several webinars planned for the coming months, and anticipates several additional ones over the next 12 months.  Several of these are in partnership with the Northeast Waste Management Officials Association (NEWMOA).

  • EPA’s AgSTAR Anaerobic Digestion Development Project – July 16
