AARST Announces Indoor Environments 2023 — The Radon and Vapor Intrusion Symposium
HENDERSONVILLE, N.C., March 28, 2023 (Newswire.com) - AARST's symposium is the largest gathering of practitioners, training providers, researchers, regulators, technicians and manufacturers in radon and vapor intrusion in the U.S. AARST is convening its 37th annual gathering for hundreds of attendees seeking to learn, share and network at Indoor Environments 2023™ — The Radon and Vapor Intrusion Symposium, Oct. 29-Nov. 1 in Nashville.
Indoor Environments 2023™ will offer concurrent technical tracks focusing on Practice and Policy, Vapor Intrusion, Science and Research, and State Radon Programs. The agenda, speakers, and topics will be determined as the culmination of a public "call for presentations," combined with committee and AARST leadership consideration of additional important topics. Peer-reviewed abstracts and invited presentations will showcase the newest testing and mitigation techniques, latest scientific findings, recently revised standards, emerging public policies, and current approaches to community outreach and education programs.
Additional valuable content will be the subject of continuing education courses run by third-party training providers, including special focus on the 2023 editions of the ANSI/AARST standards. AARST's annual meeting, announcements of awards and, inevitably, numerous side meetings, will round out the agenda in Nashville this year.

AARST Announces Organizational Rebranding
AARST is rebranding to Indoor Environments Association™ to formally adopt work already started on chemical vapor intrusion and pursue efforts focused on other contaminants of concern in the built environment while maintaining significant attention to radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer. Over the next 12 months, the association's website, logo, and public identity will change to align with the organization's recently revised mission statement: AARST is a nonprofit, professional organization of members who are dedicated to the highest standard of excellence and ethical performance of hazard identification and abatement of radon, chemical vapor intrusion, and other contaminants of concern in the built environment. The organization primarily strives to advance the interests of its members through developing industry standards, certifying technical proficiency, enabling advancement of public policy, and communicating health risks to the public.
