ADWM Calls for Industry Input 

Less than two weeks into the new job, ADWM Director Andy Tobin has called for input from the regulated community about how to improve the Department.  Director Tobin is bringing a new vision to the ADWM and is making good on Governor Ducey’s promise to have agency directors take a look at regulations in their area and identify ones we can do without.

ADWM is calling for input from the regulated community on potential improvements to the Department.  Please submit your suggestions to me by next Wednesday, February 11.  Alternatively, you can email Michelle Wilson at mwilson@azdwm.gov directly with your ideas. 

Director Tobin and staff will be rolling out these proposed changes to the industry at a workshop on Friday, February 13 at 1:00 pm at the ADWM Offices, 4425 W. Olive Avenue, Suite 134, Glendale, AZ 85302.  Mark your calendars!
