MWCC Conference

Swana Missouri Chapter has been a main sponsor of the MWCC annual conference helping organize the Solid Waste tract.  This tract deals with current issues in the solid waste management field.  Also, most of the sessions offered receive CEU credit for renewal of MDNR's Certified Solid Waste Technician.  Your local chapter also offers a one day training course each year that also provides all the CEU credits for Technician certification renewal.  Please see the information on the 'Training' page on this site.

 

The MO Chapter also holds our annual meeting at a Tuesday morning breakfast.  All SWANA existing and prospective members are invited to attend and be involved.  This year's conference was held July 12th to 14th at Tan-Tar-A resort, the Lake of the Ozarks.  It was a good time to network with other solid waste professionals from both the public and private sector.  The 2016 conference is scheduled for July 10th to 12th at the Tan-Tar-A resort.  Check it out at www.mowastecoalition.org
