When you have something important to say, nothing is more important than face-to-face contact.
Establish your organization as a key force in improving the use of innovative environmental technologies and processes.
ITRC welcomes companies and trade associations to its Industry Affiliates Program (IAP). IAP provides several important elements to the environmental site owner, consultant or technology developer:

Success Stories from IAP Members
Paul Favara, CH2M, says, "CH2M continues to support ITRC because it provides our technical staff a unique forum to collaboratively work with remediation industry stakeholders and solve some of the greatest challenges facing the remediation industry. Through ITRC’s collaborative working process, our staff is able to meet new people and develop career long relationships with other ITRC participants. By participating in ITRC workgroups, IAP members are exposed to a diversity of thought from regulators, site owners, vendors, and other consultants. Because there are so many different ways to contribute to various workgroups, all participants are able to have their work show up in the final work product, as long as they are inclined to put in the effort to provide a meaningful contribution. All CH2M staff who have participated in ITRC workgroups are eager to participate in future workgroups because they find the effort rewarding."
Nathan Hagelin, Amec Foster Wheeler, says, "We at Amec Foster Wheeler are committed to ITRC and its mission to promote sound science and technologies for solving difficult environmental challenges. We gladly participate in the IAP because it affords access to individuals representing diverse perspectives and helps us as a company not only share our expertise broadly in a collaborative environment, but also to stay ahead of developments on important emerging issues. We place members on each active team with the expectation that they will participate enthusiastically and carry back their learnings to our clients and employees. Being active in ITRC gives us a voice in the very guidance documents we will be using to solve our clients’ challenges."
Buddy Bealer, Shell, says, "ITRC’s consensus process brings stakeholders’ experience, challenges, and concerns to a common forum that encourages teamwork in finding solutions that work. What I find personally rewarding in working with ITRC is the opportunity to collaborate with smart, experienced people who have a mutual respect for the diverse perspectives that everyone brings to the table. Everyone is working towards a common goal – finding creative solutions to environmental challenges."
