Oregon Chapter of A&WMA

Oregon Chapter of A&WMA

The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) is a non-profit, non-partisan, professional organization that provides training, information and networking opportunities to thousands of environmental professionals in 65 countries. The Oregon Chapter is part of the Pacific Northwest International Section (PNWIS) of A&WMA.

PNWIS Mission Statement

PNWIS is a catalyst for environmental leadership by providing a neutral forum for discussion, education and networking on technical issues relating to environmental management in the U.S. Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.

History of PNWIS

PNWIS was formed in 1961 to promote the interchange of technical information regarding the control of air pollution.  Over time the organization has grown and changed and now addresses the needs of professionals with interests in air and water pollution, waste management, environmental planning, sustainability, climate change and other environmental topics.

Over 900 individuals in Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and the Yukon are members of PNWIS.  Approximately 800 other individuals are associated with local government, manufacturers, consulting and testing firms and the public sector.

PNWIS continues to serve as a forum for formal technical information exchange but also provides an opportunity to enhance one’s professional status and enjoy the camaraderie that comes from sharing concerns and knowledge with others with similar interests.

The Oregon Chapter meets quarterly for board meetings on the second Tuesday of the month.  We also have regular technical sessions, site tours and mixers.  If you are interested in joining us to learn more about the organization, please contact Frank Jones for details at fjones@lpgassociates.com.
