SWANA

Lawrence Lecturer Award

SWANA’s Lawrence Lecturer award is given to an individual recognized as a national/international leader and expert. While emphasis is placed on the recipient working in the field of solid waste management, other fields of environmental protection also may be considered. Recognition can be for work in research, management, publications, teaching and/or political action. Contributions should be substantial, significant and sustained.

As part of the award, the lecturer shall receive an honorarium and reimbursement for travel costs. The amount provided for travel and the honorarium is determined by the Trustees. The recipient may be a citizen of any country. Joint recipients may be selected where the recipients represent joint efforts of endeavor. The Lawrence Lecture is presented annually at WASTECON®.
