(May 9, 2018) At this year's Annual Meeting, ITRC membership voted in a new Co-Chair (approved by the ERIS Board). Richard Spiese of Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) will serve a three-year term, replacing Cherri Baysinger of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, whose term ended in April.

Richard has worked with VT DEC's Waste Management Division as a Project Manager of hazardous waste sites since 1987 and has worked on over 400 sites related to petroleum, chlorinated solvents, PCBs, metals, PAHs, coal tar, and most recently, PFCs. Richard brings to the Co-Chair position previous ITRC Board experience as the State Association Representative and most recently as the Team Leader Liaison.

Congratulations Richard!
