M&A: Current Market Conditions
Presented by Effram Kaplan, Environmental and Industrial
Services Advisor at Brown Gibbons Lang & Company

As the liquid recycling industry matures, the merger & acquisition activity in the sector continues to grow. NORA members are more diversified than ever which adds complexity to potential transactions. An expert with experience in this space will explore the current state of the M&A landscape and what the market values now. Whether your business is buying, considering a sale or understanding current market conditions, this session will provide the insight you need.

Construction Market Outlook
Presented by George Reddin, Managing Director at
FMI Capital Advisors, Inc. 

The election. COVID-19. State budgets. There is a great deal of uncertainty as we enter 2021. NORA members are preparing their business plans and budgets. The construction market, particularly the asphalt pavement sector, directly or indirectly impacts many members. An expert from that space will provide a report on the outlook for the sector in 2021.



PCBs: What to Do When It Happens to YOU
presented by Tim Swickard, Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig LLP

Hopefully you will never have the nightmare of PCB contamination infecting your facility, equipment and trucks. But it can happen. If it does, you need to be prepared. There are about two dozen or so actions you’ll need to take immediately – from notifying EPA and your insurance company to collecting evidence on the source of the PCBs to making sure all of your decontamination costs are in compliance with the National Contingency Plan. If a PCB incident is in your future, don’t miss this session – it could save your company!

What I Wish I Knew Before We Sold

A panel of individuals from NORA member companies that have sold will share their first hand experience. While each situation is unique, these members have gained an invaluable education and are willing to share with you the lessons they learned. Their experience includes learning new terminology, valuation methodologies, the overall process and other random processes. An interactive question and answer period will allow members to participate with the panel.


COVID-19 – Prepping for What’s Next

In mid-March, NORA members quickly developed best practices to allow them to continue to operate their businesses safely. Many of those best practices were shared in a report to members early on. Now that we are seven months past, it is a good time to reflect on what is working and what needs improvement. We will also look forward to anticipate what is on the horizon for our businesses from a COVID-19 perspective. A member panel will explore this with an interactive Q&A session after.


Government Affairs Executive Summary
Presented by Jack Waggener, Senior Principal at AECOM

While COVID-19 may have slowed down some things in 2020, many new government regulations and initiatives have been introduced or changed this year. This session will provide you a high level view of the government affairs issues that are evolving in the liquid recycling sector that will impact your business in 2021 and beyond. Topics that will be reviewed include the US Department of Energy Used Oil Report, PFAS, Parts Cleaning state rules, IMO 2020 and much more.
