Subject: Approval to Attend Stewardship 2016

I would like your approval to attend Stewardship 2016 in Baltimore, Maryland. This conference is a unique opportunity for me to gain the knowledge and insight our organization needs to better manage our daily challenges and prepare for the issues we’ll face tomorrow.

Stewardship 2016 offers a comprehensive menu of product stewardship education sessions – from banned/restricted substances and emerging article regulations to program management and value chain/supply chain communications and everything in between. Additionally, Stewardship 2016 is co-located with AIHce 2016, the premier conference for occupational and environmental health and safety professionals, and includes access to those sessions as well. Below I’ve listed specific sessions that impressed me as being important to our current and future activities.

I realize our budget is tight this year, however, this conference is a solid investment that will result in immediate and long-term benefits. I will be able to:

  • increase efficiencies and productivity, enhance performance to help the bottom line, and maximize our investment by sharing information and knowledge with you and our colleagues.
  • network with my peers from all over the world to benchmark and learn what they are doing to address similar issues.
  • meet industry partners to find the latest tools to help our organization.
  • access “On Demand,” which provides digital recordings of almost all of the conference sessions. This information will be available to share within the organization at no additional cost.

Stewardship 2016 is truly the best, most comprehensive educational investment we can make in our organization this year. Difficult times make it more important than ever that we NOT miss the information and knowledge that can help us build for a better tomorrow.

Thank you for your consideration.
