My first message to the body should be reminding you all to register for WasteCon that would have been held in Grapevine in December. Instead, we are continuing to navigate through the uncertain times of COVID-19. Our local municipalities and private business-es are facing challenges that we never could have imagined when 2020 took over the calendar. Nevertheless, I am honored to be the incoming President of this great organization.
Your TxSWANA Board has been busy navigating the “new normal.” We have continued to meet virtually to handle the business of the Texas Lone Star Chapter and the virtual meetings will continue until further notice. WasteCon 2020 has moved from an in-person meeting to a virtual meeting. “WasteCon 2020: Embracing Disruption,” will take place as a virtual conference to be held January 26-28, 2021. I encourage everyone to participate in the conference and more information will be available soon.
Going forward, my expectations are to provide our members with training opportunities while navigating through the constraints of COVID-19. The solid waste industry has been a shining star and will continue to be essential and quite necessary. I encourage you to maintain your professionalism and safety as you conduct your daily duties of keeping your communities clean and safe.
Thanks for all you do!
Morris Williams Jr.
