Call for Abstracts

We will accept abstracts for AHMP’s 2024 EHS- Hazardous Materials Management Summit conference from January 3 through April 15, 2024.

Submit your abstract HERE.

Submitting an abstract is a great way to share your knowledge and experience with colleagues, allowing you to showcase technical solutions, regulatory expertise, project successes, or case studies to help educate the conference attendees. Another benefit is that you can also earn valuable certification maintenance points for attending and presenting.

You will have the option to pick various formats from one-hour technical sessions, longer mini-seminars or workshops, poster sessions, and pre-conference workshops. A special room will be set aside for conference sponsors and exhibitors to demo or showcase their offerings.
