Call for Presentations for 2019 Conference

The MWCC Environmental Conference Planning Committee is seeking speakers to present technical topics individually or in panel discussions. Each breakout session will be an hour and a half and include 2 or 3 presentations. 

This year’s theme is “Balancing Environment and Economy” and we are specifically interested in presentations which can relate this theme of “balance” to technical topics.  How do you balance the many needs pulling an issue in different directions?  Do you appease the community, regulators, or elected officials?  When are good operational practices limited by regulatory restrictions, and how to accomplish an acceptable result?  What is the most useful way to evaluate project performance, what defines success?  The conference will be divided into multiple tracks, including:


Traditional Solid Waste
landfills, transfer stations, collections/hauling

  • Landfill/transfer station design/siting/investigation
  • Integrated solid waste management
  • Landfill gas
  • Leachate management
  • Coal combustion residuals
  • Emergency/Disaster planning
  • Collection programs and issues
  • Hot loads

General Environmental
general topics of environmental concern

  • Water management
  • Remediation
  • Emerging contaminants
  • Emergency Response
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Environmental project funding
  • Air regulations
  • Environmental restoration
  • Hazardous waste
  • Regulatory updates and legal issues
  • Water management
  • Energy issues
  • Brownfields
  • Tanks

"Green" Issues
waste minimization, recycling, sustainability, or innovative development

  • Long-term stewardship
  • Sustainability
  • Land management practices
  • Food waste and organics diversion
  • Green roofs and other green infrastructure development
  • Green construction
  • Safety

These tracks may be further subdivided to break out topics (ex: Coal Combustion Residuals and Remediation).  In addition to tracks the tracks listed above, MDNR will be sponsoring two tracks related to Brownfield Redevelopment and Tanks. 

If you would like to submit and/or propose a topic for presentation at the 2019 MWCC Environmental Conference, we invite you to submit a presentation proposal.  Deadline is April 30.

The MWCC Environmental Conference Planning Committee will select speakers based on time availability and applicability to the conference focus.  Selected speakers will be contacted in early May 2019.
