PSAI News - December 2021

Ross Ambrose

The Portable Sanitation Association International has partnered with Ewald Consulting to expand its reach and its work for the advancement of the industry. The PSAI board of directors chose this path upon the recommendation of executive director Karleen Kos, who stepped aside to facilitate additional organizational growth. Karleen did an incredible job for the PSAI and with a staff of two plus several volunteers, the association needed more personnel to reach its goals of further advancing the portable sanitation industry.

The transition between Ewald Consulting and the PSAI board of directors, committee chairpersons and volunteers has been smooth and is ongoing. An executive director will be announced soon, and the work of the association will continue at an even more rapid pace. The PSAI Convention and Trade Show is set for Reno, Nevada, Feb. 1-4, 2022, and planning is well underway with several new ideas being evaluated.

The PSAI’s resource partner has almost 40 years of experience in working with and contributing to furthering the goals of trade associations. Located in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, the long-time headquarters of the PSAI, the physical transition of files and equipment is going smoothly. With Karleen’s two-month advance notice of leaving, she was able to provide an inordinate amount of knowledge and assistance in the transition process.

As the PSAI is in the midst of celebrating its 50th anniversary, we are not only looking back, but we are also looking ahead. The need for PSAI volunteers is as strong as ever. If you are not a member, please consider joining and contributing as the association is looking forward to further recognition of portable sanitation as an “essential industry,” to higher standards, and to increased acceptance by the public.
