The Region 6 EPA/State Radon Stakeholders’ Meeting will be held Wednesday, March 27, 2013 from 8:00am-4:00pm at the Indigo Sky Casino in Wyandotte, OK.

This meeting is being held at no cost for all those that have a stake in protecting the public from unnecessary exposure to radon in their homes, schools and businesses. It is the intent of EPA Region 6 and its partners; the New Mexico Environmental Department, the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Eastern Shawnee Tribe and AARST (the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists) to bring interested stakeholders together to discuss common issues, provide insight into the future, understand the issues from other perspectives, share, educate and network. This meeting will focus on radon in real estate. We believe that meetings such as this will better equip all of us with ways to assist the public and reduce radon exposures.

We will:
Address how federal and state policies address healthy housing and identify opportunities to promote good indoor air quality in affordable housing. The conference will examine communication techniques for reaching diverse audiences; ways to use education and outreach for primary prevention; what makes up successful education and outreach programs; collaboration between public agencies and community groups.

Discuss how radon and other indoor air contaminants are included in current Green Building efforts.

We invite the following to come and be a part of the discussions:
• Radon professionals
• Affordable housing advocates
• City councils/local planning commissions
• Consumers of subsidized housing
• Housing authorities
• Legislators
• Sustainable development experts
• Lending industry
• Neighborhood groups
• Nonprofit housing organizations
• Professional associations
• Public agencies
• Residential builders and developers
• Tenants/housing consumers
