The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) is a nonprofit, technical and educational organization with over 16,000 members in more than 61 countries. The Association provides a neutral forum where all viewpoints of environmental issues (technical, scientific, economic, social, political, and public health) receive equal consideration. Founded in 1907, A&WMA has published thousands of journal articles, newsletters, and directories. It has also held countless numbers of workshops, conferences, seminars, and educational courses. This is a professional organization representing many disciplines: engineering, physical and social sciences, health, law, and management.

A&WMA is primarily concerned with air pollution and the waste management side of environmental professions. So if you're interested in the Clean Air Act, air toxics, ozone, RCRA regulations, hazardous waste treatment, solid waste combustion and management, or permitting, this organization is probably for you. There are also a number of people working in water pollution and water resource management who are active members of this organization.
