Call for Presentations for 2023 Conference

Deadline: March 31, 2023

The MWCC Environmental Conference Planning Committee is seeking speakers to present technical topics individually or in panel discussions. Each breakout session will be an hour and a half and include 2 or 3 presentations. 

This year’s theme is 50 Years of Providing Excellence in Environmental Leadership" and we are specifically interested in presentations which can relate this theme to technical topics.What changes (community, regulatory, political, industry, other?) have you observed in recent years that affect our roles in waste control and environmental issues, and are you being strangled by them or embracing them?  Are our actions most influenced by the community, regulators, elected officials, or something else?  When are good operational practices limited by “outside” restrictions, and how do you achieve optimal results in this new era?  What innovative means are you using to evaluate project performance, what defines success? 

The conference will be divided into multiple tracks, including:
