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.
