AWMA Environmental Permitting Conference

Attached is a call for papers for an environmental permitting conference
sponsored by the Air and Waste Management Association that will be happening
in February in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina.  One
section will address pollution prevention in permits (any and all media).
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit a 250 word
abstract to Leo Stander  at STANDER.LEO@epamail.epa.gov by August 1.


	An international specialty conference, titled Environmental
Permitting Symposium, will be held February 17  to 19, 1999, at the Sheraton
Imperial Hotel in Cary, North Carolina.  This symposium will provide a
technical forum for environmental professionals to share experiences and
knowledge concerning permitting activities and to discuss legal and
regulatory requirements.  Permits are being utilized as tools to implement
the various pollution control requirements and to ensure that sources of
pollution are aware of all the requirements that apply.   Efforts to comply
with environmental permitting requirements are major activities for private
industry, state and local environmental agencies, environmental consultants,
and for the federal government.  Continuing education courses will also be
offered in conjunction with the conference.
