ASTSWMO is a member-driven organization. If you are employed directly by a State or Territorial environmental agency and work in a waste, remediation, underground storage tank, or materials management program, then you are a member of ASTSWMO and eligible to participate in its Task Forces, Focus Groups, and Work Groups within its Subcommittees and Research Centers that focus on your area of expertise.
Groups within each Subcommittee and Research Center are comprised of one State member from each EPA Region to provide balanced representation. Members of each group generally serve three-year terms, as described in the Association's Members in Action document.
