Stay current on all the ANSI/AARST national consensus standards utilized by numerous federal and state agencies, such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The ANSI/AARST accredited standards include processes, procedures, and quality assurance systems to ensure standardized approaches for measurement and mitigation of soil gases in existing and new homes, schools, and large and multi-family buildings.

Learn the newest testing and mitigation techniques by exploring the latest products and technology. Deepen your knowledge in the industry by acquiring business-specific resources to elevate your business. Additionally, certified and licensed professionals can earn continuing education credits.

The symposium boasts the largest soil gas exhibition hall featuring vendors from around the globe displaying the newest technology for soil gas testing and remediation, and agency partners specializing in communication and advocacy.

Extra Activities To Do

While session days and evenings might be busy for you, we recognize you might want to explore Bellevue and Seattle! Four of our Planning Committee Members are locals, so they know how to show off their hometown, the “Emerald City,” and the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. They have curated a number of activities to help with your planning. Meet up with friends, colleagues, or vendors for dinner, find activities for your family to do while you are in sessions, and visit unique places of interest if you plan on staying longer. Purchase the Friends and Family Outing: “Treat Yourself to Seattle,” offered Tuesday, October 25.
