FORUM WORKSHOPS & EVENTS

Each year The Forum hosts at least three informative events:

  • A half-day Spring Conference usually takes place in March. This event features presentations in a variety of formats on issues that are of concern to the broad spectrum of members. At each Mini-conference, members hear a presentation on the state of current regulations and legislation that may impact the State’s waste managers.
     

  • The Annual Business Meeting is held in May. At this meeting members elect Directors to replace those whose term expires on June 30th, and vote to accept a budget for the coming fiscal year. After the formal meeting, an expert in matters of current interest to Forum members makes a presentation and responds to questions and comments from members.
     

  • A full-day Conference and Exhibit, usually held in November, rounds out the year’s events. The organizers select a theme for each Conference, and select topics and speakers who will present a variety of viewpoints relating to the general theme. There are multiple sessions in the morning, and a general session in the afternoon. Also throughout the Conference, attendees may visit the Exhibits set up by various vendors, professional consultants and governmental agencies.
     

  • These events are open to all members of the Forum and the public who are interested in learning about the major waste management issues confronting our communities.
