Join us for the AWMA 2020 Joint Florida Section,

Coastal Plains and Alabama Chapters

Virtual Technical Conference

Connecting Resiliency and Innovation

Message from the Conference Co-Chairs

 

On behalf of the Florida Section of the Air & Waste Management Association and its Board Members, we are very excited about the AWMA 2020 Joint Florida Section, Coastal Plains and Alabama Chapters Virtual Technical Conference! Due to COVID-19 limitations the Florida Section is partnering with the Coastal Plains and Alabama Chapters to host a joint virtual conference this year. We have a diverse venue of presentations by experienced professionals to keep us all abreast of current industry and regulatory developments. Just when we think we are all caught up with the state of the practice, new issues arise that require us to keep up with the current state of affairs. One of the primary goals of A&WMA is to help keep our members educated to meet new challenges, as well as work with universities and students to continue to help develop and support new professionals to the industry!  And that is the goal of our conference this year!

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Sincerely,

Joe Applegate & Susan Kennedy

Conference Co-Chairs
