What is our Purpose?

MACC's Young Professionals Committee has been created to provide support, professional development, and networking opportunities to individuals who are new to the environmental profession or new to conservation commissions.

Quarterly events will provide opportunities for young environmental professionals to meet their peers and MACC members. The networking events will allow committee members to develop a better understanding of the Wetlands Protection Act, Conservation Commissions, different techniques used in the field, career paths, or just meet new people. There are no admission fees for any of the Young Professionals meetings in 2018.

Who Are We?

We are Conservation Commission members and young, dynamic environmental professionals in consulting, governmental, legal, and other environmental fields who are looking to make a difference in our careers and our communities.

Why Join Our Committee?

We strive to make our events both fun and educational. We mix networking with wetlands training, brewery tours, kayaking, beer tasting, hikes, and other events. We will have free events throughout Massachusetts and hope you can participate in an event in your region.


When is OUR Next Meeting?  

On February 6, 2019, MACC is co-hosting an event with the Environmental Business Council (EBC). The EBC-Ascending Professionals Committee is holding the EBC 2nd Annual Charity Networking Night on February 6, 2019 at Night Shift Brewery, 87 Santilli Highway, in Everett, MA! This is a great opportunity to combine networking, beer tasting, and donating to an environmental cause. This year's proceeds will go to the Mystic River Watershed Association. The event costs $25/person and includes a drink ticket and appetizers.

In March 2019, we are planning a meeting related to Massachusetts' Endangered Species Act in relation to the Wetlands Protection Act. Details on the 2019 schedule will be on our website by early January 2019. If you have suggestions for professional development topics or locations for meetings, email the co-chairs: Nicholas Wyllie or Hung Pham. We hope to see you at a Young Professionals event in 2019!
