About the Conference 
A&WMA’s Annual Conference is recognized as the premier international conference of its kind providing the latest information on air, environmental management and risk, climate change, emerging contaminants such as PFAS, energy, sustainability, resource conservation, and waste management issues. The conference will feature many livestream panels and sessions, recorded presentations, plus hundreds of on-demand presentations, slides, and audio recordings. 

The interactive virtual conference platform is ideal for environmental professionals and students from a wide range of employers, industries, and educational institutions to gather from around the world to share new ideas and develop solutions to current and emerging environmental issues. Hosted by the Florida Section, their abundant coastline, diverse ecosystem and weather bring issues of climate change, sea level rise, and environmental resiliency to the forefront of environmental concerns. This conference will bring leading environmental experts and practitioners together to tackle the strategies and policies needed to develop new and innovative approaches to planning and finding solutions to meet tomorrow’s needs.

COVID-19 Statement
The A&WMA Board of Directors has decided that the 114th Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE2021) will be held in a fully-virtual, interactive format  due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our concern for the safety of everyone involved.

Our unparalleled technical content will be delivered through many livestream sessions, on-demand videos and recorded presentations, and we will be adding interactive Q & A and networking opportunities for authors, attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors.

Last year’s virtual ACE conference was a huge success and we have plenty of time to develop and enhance features for authors, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors to make it even better!
