Dear Friend of ECOS/ITRC:

The Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) and its research arm, the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC), are pleased to announce two exciting PFAS events in 2020. The ITRC PFAS training workshop will be held on April 24 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the ECOS State Environmental Protection (STEP) Meeting will be held on July 30 in Washington, DC.

ECOS is the national nonprofit, nonpartisan association of state and territorial environmental agency leaders. As the research arm of ECOS, ITRC works to reduce barriers in the implementation of innovative environmental technologies and best practices through the work of its technical teams. Together, we would like to offer you the opportunity to collaborate with us. Please see below for more information on the sponsorship packages available for your participation in our events.

ITRC’s Managing PFAS Contamination at Your Site workshop will be led by interdisciplinary PFAS experts from state and federal government, academia, and the private sector, and immediately follows the organization’s 25th Anniversary Annual Meeting. ECOS’ STEP Meeting, Partnering on PFAS, will be an all-day policy summit exploring how state and federal regulators and a variety of stakeholders are coordinating to combat PFAS contamination.

ECOS and ITRC meetings and trainings are well attended and attract leaders from state environmental agencies; U.S. EPA, U.S. DOE, U.S. DOD, and other federal agencies; industry; and NGOs. The events serve as fantastic opportunities to not only learn and share ideas but also to network with other environmental leaders and experts. To discuss sponsorship for the ITRC Training, please contact Tadbir Singh at (202) 849-4980 or To discuss sponsorship for the ECOS STEP Meeting, please contact Sarah Grace Longsworth at (202) 266-4926 or I extend my sincere appreciation to you for considering support of ECOS’ and ITRC's 2020 PFAS conferences.
