Benefits of Being a Technical Division Member

Enhance Your Visibility

Gain recognition from your supervisors as someone who is leader material and willing to do more than the basics required for the job. Some companies require staff at certain levels to be members of a professional association and contribute volunteer time to it. Is yours one of those?

Crowdsource Answers

SWANA Community Forums (specific to each Technical Division) are email-based exchanges that allow you to pose questions and get answers to pressing issues. Someone in the division probably has addressed the same challenges you are facing and is willing to share what worked and what didn’t, saving you time and money.

Access Expertise

As a Division member, you have access to the full contact list of other Division subscribers who run some of the most successful and innovative solid waste programs in the industry. Who do you consider to be an industry superstar that you’d like to know? Whose program is a model that you want to emulate?

Create a SWANA Future

Division members shape the future of SWANA and the solid waste industry. Members lead the development of conference agendas and webinars that are the heart of SWANA educational programming, select award winners that exemplify industry excellence, design training programs that lead to professional certification, craft technical policies that guide industry practices and much more.
