NOTICE:  COVID-19 Policy

At EPAZ, we are carefully and constantly monitoring the Coronavirus developments and are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH), and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) to assure that best public health practices are implemented by EPAZ.  EPAZ believes that we must all be responsible citizens and do what we can to help slow the community spread of the Coronavirus.  Members of the EPAZ Board of Directors will continually assess, based on current conditions, how to modify activities and events to advance the mission of EPAZ and protect public health.


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. We provide a platform that allows our members to learn and share information within a diverse list of environmental disciplines including air, water, waste, pollution prevention, sustainability issues, safety and climate change.

Founded in 1986 as the HAZWaste Society, EPAZ is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation operated by a dedicated group of volunteers. Proceeds from all our educational events and activities benefit the EPAZ Scholarship Fund, whereby Arizona students studying within environmentally related fields are awarded scholarships.
