Town Hall Meeting: The Future of Regulatory Atmospheric Modeling 
A favorite of past Air Quality Modeling Specialty Conferences, the Town Hall provides a forum for attendees to interact with regulators and modeling community stakeholders. Panelists are given the opportunity to address a topic followed by a question-and-answer session where attendees can submit questions to the panel. This conference’s topic addresses the future of regulatory atmospheric modeling. 

Panelists include:
•  Tyler Fox, Group Leader, Air Modeling Group, U.S. EPA
•  James W. Boylan, Ph.D.; Manager, Planning & Support Program, Georgia Department of Natural Resources
•  Ryan A. Gesser, CCM; Georgia-Pacific Environmental Affairs
•  Rick Gillam, U.S. EPA Region 4
