The EHS & Sustainability Management Forum is the largest annual gathering of EHS and sustainability managers, directors and vice presidents.


NAEM is proud to be able to support the Florida economy with this year’s conference and happy to report the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa where the Forum will be held was not damaged during Hurricane Irma.

"Everybody who’s here that I’ve interacted with has made me a better professional, by spending time with them, by asking questions, by challenging my viewpoints."


-- Brad Waldron, Director, Corporate Risk Management; Caesars Entertainment Corp.


"The Forum is one of the most unique events of its kind, primarily because of the attendance...NAEM attracts managers, directors and vice presidents of environmental health and safety and sustainability. And it's really an organization for them and by them, so the presentation quality is very high because you're hearing from your peers."


-- Chris Milici, Director of Global EHS & Security; John Crane Inc.


"One of the really nice things about NAEM is that you gain a network of people you can ask one of those unusual questions that come up. [The answer to] that thing that you hadn't experience before are only a phone call away"


-- Alan Leibowitz, Corporate Director, Environment, Safety, Health & Security; Excelis Inc


"I usually walk away from the Forum with a set of tools that I can take back and put to work in my company."


-- Jim Spahr, U.S. EHS Manager; Hexcel Corp.




"I've been to conferences where if you come and you don't know anybody or even if you come with your team, it can sometimes be hard to get into the group, but it's definitely not been like that [at the Forum]. People have been very open to talk with me and talk with my team about everything."


-- Fawn Bergen, Global Environmental Program Leader; AMCOL International Corp.



"It's a wonderful place to connect with your peers, meet new people, share all kinds of experiences. It's wonderful to see how much translates across sectors. You can get inspired, get big ideas with practical ways to apply them when you go home."


--  Leslie Montgomery, Environmental Stewardship Program Manager, Southern Co.
