Message from the Chapter President
Dear Sierra Chapter Members,
I am proud and excited to serve as your President for 2016. The Central California “Sierra Chapter” of the Solid Waste Association of North American (SWANA) offers a lot of great networking and other opportunities, such as: trainings, meetings, conferences, continuing education units (CEUs), recognition, awards, scholarships, legislative bill analysis, and many great volunteer opportunities. Simply put: there is something for everyone in the Sierra Chapter!
The State of California has been extremely aggressive in approving waste-diversion and material recycling laws that while have good intent, do at times create accumulated impact(s) upon the industry. With this in mind, it is critical that we as an industry, communicate and share our successes as well as our failures so that we not only survive the difficult times, but thrive! To this end, we’ve attempted to set an agenda of meetings that promote the sharing of knowledge and provide networking opportunities for the wide variety of waste management disciplines.
Please join us for one or more of our meetings with programs, round table discussions and facility tours. Experience any of the great training opportunities SWANA makes available to its members, participate in the ROAD-E-O or just come out and root for your favorite driver or team. As you can see from our web site, there are numerous ways to join in and get the most from your SWANA membership.
Feel free to contact me or any Sierra Chapter Board Members if you have any questions or suggestions. I look forward to you joining the Sierra Chapter!
Eric Zetz, President
SWANA Central California Sierra Chapter
