ITRC's State Engagement Program ensures that ITRC documents and training courses are available, promoted, and used. Each state assigns a staff person from its environmental agency to serve as an ITRC Point of Contact (POC).

The goal of the ITRC State Engagement Program (SEP) is to work with state environmental agencies to foster good decision-making regarding the use of innovative environmental technologies for more effective environmental protection. The core purpose of the SEP is to ensure that ITRC documents and training courses are available, promoted, and used by staff at state environmental agencies and all other applicable stakeholders. The SEP is comprised of a network of the state Points of Contact (POCs), along with the State Engagement Coordinator (SEC)—who is a voting member of the ITRC Board of Advisors—and contract-based Program Advisor support. The POCs play an integral role by serving as advocates for ITRC in their state’s environmental agency and by communicating their state’s environmental priorities back to ITRC. The POCs are also instrumental in marketing and promoting ITRC tools and resources to other government agencies, industry, academia, and community and tribal groups.

Best Part About Being a POC: I like helping people get to their 'A-HA' moment; the point when they understand a new technique/technology or can see the solution to a technical roadblock.

Other Experience with ITRC: Sampling, Characterization, and Monitoring team member/team leader; RRM team member; GSR team member.

Hobbies/Activities Outside of Work/ITRC: I teach water aerobics and play classical guitar. I also make stained glass panels when I can find the time.
