We are returning to Green Bay!   WIRMC 2023 (Feb 22-24, 2023 / Hyatt Regency, Green Bay, WI) is specifically looking for engaging and thought provoking presentations that showcase the advancements in resources management, solid waste management, recycling, resource recovery, and composting. Presentations will be delivered in person. Every presentation will have a moderator available to provide support to the speakers and engage attendees.  

Presentations are expected to run for 50 minutes, followed by an additional 5-10 minutes for Q&A and discussion for standard presentations on Thursday and Friday. For those interested in providing a "workshop style" presentation of 2 hours+, then please select Wednesday below.  

Presentation proposals are due no later than September 12, 2022. The conference committee will be making presentation decisions in early October. You will be notified by late October.
