Young Professionals


The A&WMA realizes the value of young professionals (YPs) under the age of 35 to the environmental industry. The Midwest Section A&WMA Young Professionals (YP) are a group of young, talented, area environmental professionals age 35 and under, interested in learning, networking, building friendships and becoming more involved in A&WMA. The Midwest Section strives to provide YP members with the resources and information important to YPs. Each year we hold a YP workshop, ͞ Introduction to the Environmental Profession.  More information on the YP Workshop can be found here.

Attend our annual conference, monthly meetings, and social events to get connected within A&WMA. Please let us know what you’re hoping the Midwest Section can do, either for you or for the Section.

Here is more information on the A&WMA’s Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC).  If you have any ideas, comments, or questions about the Midwest Section Young Professionals group, please email us at
