Marc Rogoff to Present on Public Engagement at 2020 SWANApalooza's Virtual Conference

Marc Rogoff, Ph.D. (Florida) will present "Developing an Effective Public Engagement Campaign" at the 2020 SWANAPalooza Virtual Conference hosted by the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) from 2:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. on June 25, 2020.

Marc's co-presenter is Mark Spafford, General Manager, Municipality of Anchorage / Solid Waste Service.

Marc Rogoff is a Senior Consultant based in Florida with more than 38 years of professional experience focused on solid waste management, including waste collection studies, facility feasibility assessments, facility site selection, property acquisition, environmental permitting, operation plan development, solid waste facility benchmarking, ordinance development, solid waste plans, financial assessments, rate studies/audits, development of construction procurement documents, bid and RFP evaluation, contract negotiation, and bond financings.

SWANA's premier technical conference for solid waste technologies and solutions to transform waste into a resource is more important now than ever. In light of the ongoing threat of the coronavirus and continued focus on community safety, the live event has been transitioned to an industry-changing virtual conference to help attendees with their biggest challenges.

SWANA is an organization of more than 10,000 public and private sector professionals committed to advancing from solid waste management to resource management through their shared emphasis on education, advocacy and research. For more than 50 years, SWANA has been the leading association in the solid waste management field. SWANA serves industry professionals through technical conferences, certifications, publications and a large offering of technical training courses.

Presentation Description

Help us develop an effective public engagement campaign for a new Waste to Energy (WTE) facility in the U.S. In this crowdsourcing, problem-solving session – different in format from any other SWANApalooza session this year – you are the expert!

We're opening a new WTE facility in the U.S. and want to get it right. While there are 77 active WTE facilities in the U.S., only one new Greenfield project has been constructed for more than 20 years.

If you have any experience with public engagement campaigns for a project or facility of any type or size – good experience or bad – or just want to learn how to best engage the public and what not to do, join us. This session isn't a lecture; it's a working session in which you will be fully engaged throughout!
