COMMITTEE & CHAIRS
We encourage our members to get involved in SAEMS. Consider joining one of our committees to help SAEMS inform, educate, and promote environmental management for Southern Arizona.
The Education Committee oversees the yearly scholarships awarded to University of Arizona students pursuing environmental studies. They promote the scholarship contest through U of A departments with students that would qualify for the scholarship, review the applications, interview finalists, and recommend final scholarship awards based on both merit and financial need.
The Education Committee also collaborates with other area government agencies, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations as determined by the SAEMS board, for impactful environmental education and outreach projects where SAEMS and its members are able to partner to provide direct hands-on assistance and small grants.
RCRA Conference Committee
The RCRA Committee organizes and facilitates the SAEMS annual RCRA Seminar. This conference provides environmental professionals with the opportunity to learn the latest RCRA regulatory updates, share industry specific information, and network among environmental professionals and government agencies within Arizona. Proceeds from this conference go directly into the SAEMS student scholarship fund.

The mission of this committee is to produce and promote internet-based materials and resources to showcase the activities and annual scholarship awards of SAEMS to its members and the residents of Southern Arizona.
