Education Council

The Education Council is responsible for professional development, training, and K-12, secondary, and post-secondary education programs. 

The mission of this Council is to encourage adequate human resources in the fields of air and waste management, improve the knowledge and skills of members and professionals, and exchange information to improve environmental knowledge and decisions.
The Professional Development Division develops and delivers training programs on leading-edge topics within the realm of air and waste management such as webinars and courses.  The division constitutes a webinar committee and a committee for the professional development of women. Volunteer commitment includes review of course material, coordinating with the program delivery and attending meetings.

Committee for the Professional Development of Women
The mission of this committee is to draw upon the unique perspectives and talents of women to further the goals of the Association and to mentor women in the profession.

The Higher Education Division develops student programs to encourage interest in the field, and assists students with higher education through scholarship and awards. 

The Public Education Division develops and delivers materials used to educate members, environmental professionals, the media, educators, and the general public about environmental issues and encourage members to become actively involved in environmental education efforts.  
K-12 Committee
Be a part of educating the next generation of Environmental Professionals by helping K-12 environmental science teachers.  We are working on revitalizing the K-12 education committee and are looking for K-12 teachers to volunteer and help with our committee. The educators/teachers would help review our existing lesson plans and provide insights on how to enhance them to satisfy the requirements of the 21st century science classroom.  Please get in touch with Chair, Georges Bou-Saab via email:
