(January 29, 2018) I am excited to announce our 2018 Annual Meeting April 16-18, 2018 in Anaheim, CA! The 2018 Annual Meeting is the only time that all ITRC members convene to promote best environmental practices and further the work of the organization. This year's theme is Shaping Our Environmental Future, and will focus on looking ahead in the face of challenges, and moving forward by leading the way for innovative environmental solutions.

ITRC is a State-led, public-private coalition working together to increase regulatory acceptance and the use of state-of-the- art technologies. Because ITRC frequently is asked about opportunities to engage, we wanted to make you aware of the sponsorship opportunities and benefits for this Annual Meeting. ITRC is a program of the Environmental Research Institute of the States (ERIS), a non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization, and sponsorships may be eligible for tax deductions.

I wanted to make you aware of the sponsorship opportunities and benefits for this Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting will include a Luncheon Plenary Session highlighting efforts to overcome regional environmental challenges. Other highlights include working meetings for 6 technical teams (topics include Methane, Stormwater, Advanced Site Characterization, In Situ Injection, TPH, and PFAS), coffee meet-and-greet for new and non-members interested in learning more about ITRC, and an award ceremony. Last year we had more than 400 environmental professionals from state environmental agencies (U.S. EPA, U.S. DOE, U.S. DOD, and other federal agencies), industry, and NGOs.

Opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Break Sponsor ($2,500): Two free member meeting registrations (valued at $500); signage at sponsored break; and an area to display materials (exhibit, poster, banner, etc.) at Registration.
  • Plenary Luncheon Sponsor ($5,000): Three free member meeting registrations (valued at $750); signage at Plenary Luncheon; and an area to display materials (exhibit, poster, banner, etc.) at Registration.

Sponsor names and company logos will be recognized on the ITRC website, and on ITRC Annual Meeting posters and slides, as well as recognized at the Plenary Luncheon. Please let me know if you have any questions. To discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact me at (202) 266-4933 or preyes@ecos.org no later than March 15, 2018.
