Mission:
The Association of State Wetland Managers is a national nonprofit membership organization established in 1983 to promote and enhance protection and management of wetland resources; to promote application of sound science to wetland management efforts and to provide training and education for our members and the public. Membership is open to anyone.

The Association has the following goals: 1. Help states develop and implement wetland regulatory and management programs; 2. Improve the coordination of wetland programs and policies at all levels of government; 3. Provide training and capacity building for state wetland programs; 4. Facilitate the integration of wetlands into water resources and watershed management; 5. Build conservation and restoration partnerships among states, tribes, local governments, nonprofits, and other interested parties; 6. Translate wetland science into fair and reasonable government policies; 7. Encourage minority participation in wetland protection, restoration and management; 8. Integrate wetlands into broader landscape and resource management initiatives.

In 2012, ASWM launched Wetlandkeepers, a capacity-building campaign, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. ASWM has a goal of raising $500,000.00 to build capacity in three core program areas: wetland programs, climate change and protecting watersheds. For more information about these programs, visit: http://www.aswm.org/wetlandkeepers-campaign
Results:
In 2011, we launched a newly-organized website, offered new services such as a Wetland Jobs Board, webinars on water quality standards for wetlands, published over 5 reports on critical issues essential to improving wetlands and water resources protection, such as climate change adaptation techniques applied to wetlands.
