The Board will host a Roundtable Meeting in Inuvik at the Midnight Sun Recreation Centre from 10 to 16 September 2011.
Why attend the Inuvik Roundtable?
You can hear from experts on the Arctic Review scope elements, namely:

You can ask questions of any Roundtable participants.
You can assist the Board in developing the Arctic Review Public Report by offering your views on what you would like to see addressed in it.
You can express your views as to what the Filing Requirements should be for future applications to drill a well in the Arctic Offshore.
Board Members will attend the Roundtable and will be able to hear participants firsthand. The Roundtable will also be transcribed and the transcripts will be posted on the Arctic Review webpage.
