Thanks for Coming
Thank you all for joining us for the 2023 ASTSWMO Mid-Year Meeting.
ASTSWMO has funding available to reimburse State Brownfields, Federal Facilities, Hazardous Waste, Materials Management, and Superfund programs’ members for their travel expenses, lodging, and meals. Please note: Funding for Tanks is strictly for Tanks Task Force Members Only. To receive ASTSWMO funding, State attendees must request reimbursement when registering for the meeting and funding must be approved and confirmed by ASTSWMO staff prior to travel arrangements being made.
The deadline to request reimbursement from ASTSWMO is March 10, 2023.
ASTSWMO staff will confirm reimbursement requests and provide additional travel policy and reimbursement instructions or notify you of your place on the reimbursement wait list by March 17, 2023.
• ASTSWMO has limited funding for each Program and cannot guarantee reimbursement to every State within each Program. ASTSWMO encourages State staff to predetermine which employees will travel with ASTSWMO funding.
• Within each of the Program areas, only one reimbursed attendee per State will be approved.
• After the plenary sessions, reimbursed attendees are required to attend the program breakout sessions related to their funding source. For example, Federal Facilities-funded attendees are expected to attend the Federal Facilities sessions.
ASTSWMO Gives Back
Since April 2015, ASTSWMO has been supporting local community non-profits in the cities in which we hold our meetings. Since ASTSWMO began accepting donations, we have raised more than $15,000 for various organizations working with students, recycling, food waste and species rehabilitation and conservation.
The chosen charity for the 2023 ASTSWMO Mid-Year Meeting is Planting To Feed.
Their mission is “To provide healthy meals to those that are hungry or that may be suffering from homelessness. By utilizing our gardens, we hope to end the hunger crisis and bridge the hunger gaps.”
