The 45th Annual Waste Management Symposium (WMS), will be held in Phoenix, AZ from March 3-7, 2019. The WMS is a global conference that attracts in excess of 2000 registrants from 35 countries. I am thrilled to tell you that Canada has been chosen as the Featured Country for the 2019 Symposium. We will highlight our many successes and contributions to the nuclear industry in general and our safe and responsible management of radioactive waste.
As a member of the WMS 2019Team Canada Steering Committee, I would like to
take this opportunity to reach out to the OCNI Membership, to encourage individuals, companies and organizations to register to attend WMS 2019.
Furthermore, I would ask you to consider making a Presentation or Demonstration of the products, skills and opportunities your organization brings to the Waste Management needs of the nuclear industry. In doing so, you will further enhance your exposure to the attendees and also help to be part of the larger opportunity to make Canada shine as the leader that it is in the nuclear world. As the Featured Country, a stage is made available for delegates and exhibitors to use, this requires some degree of organization in order to best accommodate all of those interested.
I would like to offer my assistance to those wishing to make presentations or technical demonstrations (e.g. packaging, robotics, testing apparatus, diagnostic tools, etc.). I will also create a preferred schedule for demonstrations and try to arrange any special technical requirements you may have. I would ask that you contact me as soon as possible with your plans and requirements in order that your needs will be met.
In addition to my role as described so far, I will also facilitate meetings with other WMS (non-Canadian) participants for the purposes of developing relationships, forming collaborations, establishing partnering agreements, etc. Please visit the website www.wmsym.org to learn about the registration process, costs and dates.
