A&WMA Mother Lode Chapter


A&WMA-MLC Young Professionals Group


The Mother Lode Chapter (MLC) of the Golden West Section, Air & Waste Management Association, sponsors a Young Professionals Group (YPG) within our chapter. The purpose of the Group is to foster a sense of community and support for up-and-coming air and waste management professionals in the Sacramento and Northern California region.

While the MLC still encourages continued interaction between all of our members, it is our hope to get more young professionals in the region involved and engaged in our industry, as well as our organization. MLC-YPG will be spearheaded by Gwen Pelletier, a young professional and member of the MLC Board of Directors.

  • A few objectives of the Group are to: Host regular local Happy Hours and other social events to enable young professionals in our field meet each other and enjoy networking opportunities in a casual setting;
  • Provide a strong information network concerning current air and waste management events;
  • Serve as a source of potential career opportunities; and
  • Provide peer mentorship to one another.
