Board of Directors

SWANA is governed by a 21-member Board of Directors (BOD) from across North America. This group is responsible for setting strategic direction and overseeing the association’s operations and policy positions. The BOD meets in person three times per year as well as holding regular conference calls.

The Board of Directors receives input from an Advisory Board made up of delegates from all SWANA chapters, technical divisions, private sectors and from young professional members. The Advisory Board meets in person once each year in conjunction with WASTECON® and also during the preparation of SWANA’s strategic plan (once every five years). Advisory Board Delegates also participate in regular conference calls to provide input on financial, policy and membership issues.
