2009 Annual Conference and
August 19, 2004
The East Michigan Chapter just received
a request to "bid" for the 2009 Annual Conference and
Exhibition. This is a great opportunity for the Detroit Area as well as
the East Michigan Chapter. Part of the "intent" package that is
due to the International AWMA by September 15, 2004, is a listing of
POTENTIAL Sponsors for the conference as well as the interest in the
East Michigan Chapter Membership in attending a conference in Detroit.
The East Michigan Chapter is requesting that its Membership, existing
Chapter Sponsors, and past Chapter Sponsors join us in convincing the
International AWMA to bring this Convention of Environmental
Professionals to Detroit. Please send an e-mail
or a letter to the attention of John Baguzis stating your
Company/Organization's interest in potentially sponsoring this Convention
or sending your environmental professionals to this event. There is also
ample opportunity for Companies/Organizations to be involved in hosting
"outings" to see the various sites and attractions in Detroit;
both environmental and entertainment. Any letters should be addressed to:
3 Parklane Boulevard ~ Suite 950 Parklane Towers West
John can be reached by phone with any
questions (or at the e-mail noted above) at
Examples of Sponsorship Packages,
benefits, advertising opportunities and costs from this year's conference

The Detroit Area Convention and
Visitors Bureau is already working on the package with the East Michigan
Chapter and are in the process of getting some letters of support from
some governmental dignitaries.
We are on an extremely tight time schedule, so we request that these
letters and e-mails be in no later than September 7, 2004. Your timely
support in this effort is greatly appreciated.

November 30, 2004 ~ The Annual Fall Conference will be held at the Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan. This conference is sponsored by the East and West Michigan Chapters. These joint conferences, in particular, are well attended and offer a wonderful opportunity for industry, regulators, and the public to interact with our counterparts from West part of our State.
"Update" Article Submissions
From time to time in this spot we will be offering some free advice/education from our members and sponsors of the East Michigan Chapter. If you have an article that you would like to share, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. The general rules are: 1) it must be of general interest to our membership; 2) we request that "sales pitches" are kept to a minimum; 3) it is in Microsoft Word; and 4) manage the size of the file so it will not clog up the "in trays" of our members because it is an e-mail publication!
As always, the Chapter is heavily reliant on its sponsors to continue the work that it does. Unfortunately, we have had a decrease in the number of Chapter Sponsors in the last year, and we are concerned that some of the excellent work we do with the students in the State may be at risk. The Chapter has very successfully encouraged student interest in the environmental field through active participation in judging and awards and by financial support of science fair programs <http://www.emawma.org/science.html>. The Chapter also provides 2-3 scholarships per year to college students as well as providing support to student chapters at our major Universities, and has initiated a "Teacher Training" program to provide national AWMA environmental materials to K-12 teachers through Chapter volunteers. Corporate participation and financial support of these activities are essential ingredients to the Chapter's continued success. For more information, please see: <http://www.emawma.org/sponsor.html>
Golf Outing Update
As always, the Chapter Outing was a fantastic success. 30 Players enjoyed a day in the sun and professional camaraderie on the golf course at Reddeman Farms in Chelsea. The Chapter would like to recognize Mr. Lou Pocalujka and Mr. Dave Yanochko who organized this event once again. The Chapter would also like to thank our friends at ECT Consulting, EQ-The Environmental Quality Company, GZA Environmental, NTH Consulting, and Wayne State University for their donations of prizes for the participants. The entry fees by the participants and these donations paid for the entire golf outing.
We appreciate and depend upon the participation of our members and non-members in all our Chapter Activities. If you are reading this and are not a Member of the International AWMA or even the East Michigan Chapter AWMA, please consider becoming a member. When you become an International Member you can chose to become an East Michigan Chapter Member. With International Membership, you will receive a subscription to one of two environmental magazines.
