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: The best part of being a POC is the people you get to meet throughout. I enjoy communicating with and make people aware about existing and new ITRC products. I strongly believe that ITRC products and the training they offer can help everybody who is involved with environmental health issues to excel in their profession and feel comfortable that they used the best tools available to succeed and overcome they challenges they face when dealing with remediation, regulations and more.

Other Experience with ITRC: I've been a team member for the Bioavailability of Contaminated Soils team, PFAS team and Implementing Advanced Site Characterization Tools team. I mainly took the positions as a reviewer for documents those teams produce.
