The Technical Subcommittee is one of six subcommittees created by the
National Steering Committee resulting from discussions on the future of the 507
programs at the 2002 SBO/SBAP National Conference held in Chicago, Illinois.
During the 2010 Small Business Environmental Conference in Arlington, Virginia,
it was decided that the Technical Subcommittee, which had previously focused on
air issues such as the area source rules, would be split into 3 different
subcommittees--Technical-Air, Technical-Waste, and Technical-Water. The
history and resources from the original Technical Subcommittee are shown on the
Technical-Air Subcommittee page; Mission is also shown below on this page.
Following are links to all three Technical Subcommittee pages.

interests. There are now three subcommittees: Technical-Air,
