Channel Islands Chapter

The Channel Islands Chapter, which includes Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties, California, is the local chapter of the West Coast Section Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA), a non-profit, nonpartisan technical, scientific and educational organization with almost 5,000 international members. Founded in 1907, A&WMA provides a forum where all viewpoints of an environmental issue (technical, scientific, economic, social, political and risk assessment) receive consideration. This worldwide network represents many disciplines: physical and social sciences, health and medicine, engineering and law. A&WMA attracts decision-makers from agencies, industry, business and the academic and research communities.

To serve its members, A&WMA provides opportunities for technological exchange, professional development, public education and networking. Through these efforts A&WMA will realize its vision to be recognized as the leading organization for the exchange of global environmental knowledge, ideas, and solutions.
