The WV Brownfields Conference is West Virginia’s premier redevelopment event that combines educational programs with networking opportunities between communities, local governments, development professionals, and service providers. The conference features expert panels, interactive workshops, technical training, and project case studies.

As the experts on the Operation Prevention - Educating Youth on the Dangers of Opioid Misusepanel attested, the opioid epidemic affects every community across the country. To support community leaders looking for solutions, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Discovery Education offer no-cost prevention resources through the Operation Prevention program. The program aims to combat the growing epidemic of prescription opioid misuse and heroin use by educating students about the science behind addiction and its impacts on the brain and body. This initiative for grades 3-12, educators, and parents delivers standards-aligned, digital resources for use in the classroom and at home.


Program resources include:

State Auditor’s office has partnered with graduate accounting students at West Virginia University to help monitor the finances of small, local municipalities across the state.

State Auditor J.B. McCuskey hopes the program, which launched with 36 students as a pilot program earlier this fall, will help small, cash-strapped governments meet state financial requirements cheaper and easier.

“The state doesn’t have any more money, the cities don’t have enough money and we don’t have enough people — nor can we hire any more people, because we don’t have enough money,” McCuskey said. “So what’s the solution, right? We tried to find a way to get these audits done that didn’t cost any more money, and our best solution was to go to the universities for help.”
