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.

POC Highlight

Kimberly Caldwell
Vermont POC

Position/Role with State Agency: Environmental Analyst – Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, Waste Management & Prevention Division, Sites Management Section. I am a project manager for hazardous waste sites and brownfields.

POC Since: September 2017

Best Part About Being a POC: My favorite part about being a POC is being able to communicate feedback from my state on guidance and training materials, including draft documents and online training dry-runs. It's a great opportunity to learn about different topics and contribute without being on an ITRC team, and it is clear that our feedback is valued and really makes a difference to those who use ITRC products.

Other Experience with ITRC: Shortly after becoming a POC, I joined the Optimizing In Situ Remediation Performance & Injection Strategies team and attended my first ITRC Annual Meeting in April 2018.

Hobbies/Activities Outside of Work/ITRC: I spend a lot of my free time outdoors, especially as a runner. I ran my first marathon in 2016 and have now completed four road marathons and one 50k trail race. I'm involved with my local running club and other unofficial running groups in my area. I also enjoy hiking, and I am now an Adirondack 46er, having completed all 4000ft peaks in New York State. As a relatively new resident of Vermont, I'm looking forward to exploring more of the state through hiking, camping, and fishing.
