Environmental Professionals of Arizona (EPAZ) is the premier environmental professional organization in Arizona. Our membership is comprised of state, industry, and business leaders including: regulatory, academia, environmental consultants and engineers, as well as environmental services companies dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship.

EPAZ events and activities foster networking, communication, and cooperation between industry, business, and government.

Proceeds from all our events and activities benefit the EPAZ Scholarship Fund whereby, Arizona students studying within environmentally related fields are awarded scholarships.
