Welcome to the ABA Section on Environment, Energy and Resources (SEER) Air Quality Committee website! I am honored to follow in the footsteps of some amazing past chairs of this Committee and believe that we have assembled an outstanding team of vice-chairs to help implement our Committee’s mission.
As anyone who practices in the area of air quality knows, significant federal Clean Air Act and related regulatory developments continue to occur at breakneck speed, and it can be challenging to stay abreast of the latest developments at the state and federal level throughout the United States. The Air Quality Committee is here to help. We act as a forum for information exchange among air quality practitioners and other SEER committees. We strive to keep our members current on the latest developments, through timely and informative communications via our website and listserv, social media, Hot News email alerts, newsletters, conference programs, Committee conference calls, webinars, SEER’s Year-in-Review, and other publications.
We encourage our members to participate in this exchange by submitting articles for the newsletter, suggesting topics for conferences or webinars, sending us key agency and court decisions, policy documents, or briefs on air quality issues, and posting and commenting on our social media pages. If you write an air quality-related article or blog post, we can link to it on our website upon request. All of the 2014-2015 Committee vice-chairs are listed under the Committee Roster link on the right side of this website. Feel free to reach out to me or the appropriate vice-chair if you have any suggestions, questions, or information to share.
Lastly, the 22nd Fall Conference is coming up from October 8-11, 2014, at the Trump National Doral in Miami, and I encourage you to attend. There will be several air quality law-related seminars, as well as opportunities to meet and network with fellow environmental attorneys and Committee members. We look forward to seeing you there.
Air Quality Committee Chair, 2014-2015
