East Michigan Chapter History

The Chapter was established in 1975 by environmental professionals in southeast Michigan to educate environmental professionals and students as well as provide an open forum for the discussion of environmental issues. The Chapter was chartered as the "Michigan Chapter Air Pollution Control Association". In the twenty years to follow the international association modified its name from the Air Pollution Control Association to the Air & Waste Management Association and the West Michigan Chapter was chartered. Principal activities of the East Michigan Chapter include sponsoring Michigan Science Fairs, providing scholarships for Michigan environmental graduate students and organizing meetings and technical conferences. The Chapter has tax exempt status as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
