Read Full Announcement
ASTSWMO is pleased to invite State and Territorial (State) Hazardous Waste and Materials Management managers and staff, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Headquarters and Regional staff, and other guests to the 2022 ASTSWMO Joint Hazardous Waste and Materials Management Training (Joint Training) in Cleveland, OH. The two-and-a-half-day meeting will provide a forum for training, information-sharing and interaction among participants, as well as national policy updates. Due to limitations on hotel meeting space capacity and accommodations availability, priority attendance will be given to our members, federal officials, and invited guests. Additional information on State member reimbursement and participation for the Joint Training is provided below.
The Joint Training is currently an in-person event. The Hazardous Waste and Materials Management Subcommittees will review which sessions will lend themselves to virtual participation.
The Joint Training is a mix of plenary and concurrent sessions. Plenary sessions will address issues relevant to both Hazardous Waste and Materials Management programs. Concurrent sessions will allow for a focus on Hazardous Waste and Materials Management program-specific topics.
The current draft agenda will be updated on a regular basis leading up to the Joint Training,
ASTSWMO has funding available to reimburse a minimum of one Hazardous Waste program attendee and one Materials Management program attendees per State (two total). Additional funding may also be made available to allow States to send more than two attendees. Priority for funding additional attendees from the same State will be given to speakers, moderators and Hazardous Waste and Materials Management Task Force members. Funding for State registrants placed on a wait list for ASTSWMO travel reimbursement will be considered after the registration deadline. ASTSWMO requests that States predetermine which staff will travel with ASTSWMO reimbursement prior to staff registering for the Joint Training. In order to receive ASTSWMO funding, the State attendee must be pre-registered with ASTSWMO and funding must be approved and confirmed by ASTSWMO prior to travel arrangements being made. States may fund additional attendees.
If you have any questions about reimbursement availability or State participation, please contact Kerry Callahan, ASTSWMO, at email@example.com.
ASTSWMO is NOT charging a registration fee for the Joint Training. All attendees, including speakers, must register for the meeting. The last day to register with ASTSWMO is Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
ASTSWMO also reserves the right to close registration early if capacity is reached prior to July 6, 2022. There will be no on-site registration for the Joint Training.
A confirmation of registration e-mail will be forwarded to you by EventBrite upon receipt of your completed registration form.
Please note that confirmation of reimbursement will be sent separately by ASTSWMO staff within two weeks after receiving a registration with a request for funding. Please do not make any travel arrangements before you receive the reimbursement confirmation from ASTSWMO staff.
