Inclusion in a Professional Network - Even online!
SWANA membership gives you the opportunity to interact with other solid waste professionals and develop a professional network that will be an invaluable asset to your career. Online network allows you instant access to members and information to help you expand your network.
The eLibrary is a resource filled with over 1,000 presentations from previous SWANA events. You can search the library to find articles of interest and use sub-libraries containing documents pertinent to different aspects of solid waste to help get you started. SWANA has developed a user’s guide to the e-library available HERE to help you navigate the library. As you review the library and user’s guide, please let us know if there is information not contained in the guide that could make your eLibrary experience better.
SWANA Chapter Membership
