(March 14, 2019) One Co-Chair position will be up for vote at the ITRC Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. We are fortunate to have two great applicants: Keisha Long of South Carolina's Department of Health & Environmental Control (DHEC) and current ITRC Point of Contact (POC) for South Carolina, as well as Matthew Turner from New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and current ITRC POC for New Jersey.
Keisha Long is a Superfund Project Manager at the South Carolina's Superfund Program and has been with the State for over twelve years. Keisha was also the ITRC Team Leader for the Sampling, Characterization, & Monitoring Team, and was a member of the Green & Sustainable Remediation and Remediation Risk Management teams. Keisha also served as an ITRC trainer and has been the South Carolina POC since 2010.
Matthew Turner has over 25 years of experience in the environmental field and is a manager in the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Site Remediation Program. He has been a member of ITRC since 1997 and served as the Team Leader for the Permeable Reactive Barrier Team. Matt also served as an ITRC trainer and has been the New Jersey POC since 1999.
Keisha and Matt will provide brief presentations at the Plenary Session on Wednesday, March 27 and voting will close at 5 PM of that same day. Board of Advisors' Co-Chair positions last three years and begin right after confirmation by the ERIS Commissioners in April. Please support both exciting candidates by voting.
