Dear Colleagues,

The 27th edition of the annual Texas Environmental Superconference, Texas's award-winning environmental conference, will be held on Thursday and Friday — August 6th and 7th, 2015 — in Austin at the Four Seasons Hotel. This year's theme is clichés and the conference is fittingly entitled "The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread"; each topic has an appropriate cliché assigned to it. This conference — the original, the one and only Environmental Superconference — routinely draws in excess of 500 attendees from both the public and private sectors. Don't be fooled by imitations and settle for second best: As Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell noted, "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing Baby!"

Our Wednesday evening session, on August 5th"Toe the Line" – is an entertaining 2-hour program on ethics for environmental professionals.

The conference has been approved for 11.75 hours in CLE, including 1.0 hour of Ethics. This program has been certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for 11.75 hours each: Administrative, Civil Trial, Civil Appellate Law, Oil, Gas and Mineral, and Real Estate. There are 2.0 hours of Ethics for the Wednesday evening program.

Because the conference consistently sells out, we encourage you to register early. There will be no walk-in registration.


As always, there are steep discounts for governmental attendees. As noted, registration is online at

Although registration must be made online, participants have the option of paying online by credit card (Paypal)please note it is not necessary for you to create a Pay Pal account if you do not already have one; you can pay as a "guest;"or mailing a check, payable to "State Bar of Texas" — Texas Environmental Superconference."
