EBC 23rd Annual Summer Garden Party

Fireboat and summer party

Join us as SWEP-MA co-hosts EBC's Summer Garden party again this year.

Invite your clients and colleagues to join you on a beautiful summer evening in Boston’s Seaport District.

In addition to great conversation and networking, the EBC will be announcing the inaugural “class” of EBC Ascending Leaders! The EBC Ascending Leader Awards will recognize young professionals in the energy and environmental sectors demonstrating exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. (EBC is currently accepting nominations for the EBC Ascending Leader Awards – nominate a young professional in your office today! Nominations close on July 7. Find Out More Here).

The EBC Summer Garden Party is a great event for socializing and networking in a wonderful atmosphere overlooking the Boston Harbor. There will be heavy appetizers and a cash bar (the location can take cash or credit).

EBC is collecting school supplies (pencils, pens, highlighters, pencil cases, pencil sharpeners, erasers, folders, notebooks, lined paper, graphing paper, index cards, calculators) to be donated to local schools and after-school programs via Cradles to Crayons. Please consider bringing any of the above items to the event.

Welcome to SWEP-MA!

The Society for Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP) is a national non-profit professional association of women involved or interested in environmental law, science, engineering, business, and policy. Our chapter serves as a resource for members in Massachusetts, providing opportunities for professional development through networking, educational programming, mentoring, social events and public service.

SWEP is a unique organization composed of professionals from a variety of disciplines, providing members with greater exposure to information from and contacts in diverse environmental practice areas.

SWEP-MA (our Massachusetts chapter) is planning a full year of great networking opportunities including notable speaker dinner events, monthly meet and greet receptions, business skill development programs, and public service activities.

Be Part of the Leadership of SWEP-MA!

SWEP-Massachusetts is an active organization supporting those involved in or interested in environmental law, science, business and policy. In 2006 a group of enthusiastic women decided to create a SWEP chapter here in Massachusetts. Almost 12 years later… it is time to create a new leadership team!

We invite you to become part of a new SWEP Leadership Committee.

This organization relies upon the dedication that our volunteers give to make our events and programs happen! Now we need new leadership to continue the vision of SWEP-MA.

Anyone interested in guiding the future of SWEP-MA by being part of the Leadership Committee, please email us at: info@swep-ma.org

Thank you to all who have volunteered to assist on various committees! We'll continue to need your help once our new Leadership Committee comes together.
