Happy New Year, everyone! I am looking forward to a productive and fun year of AEP activities, and I want to thank AEP members for electing me. I am excited to get to work with the great group of people that were elected and appointed to the San Francisco Bay Area Board for 2016. At our first meeting of the year we discussed ways to better serve existing members and also explore ways that we can serve a wider range of environmental professionals. This means AEP members can continue to rely on the CEQA/NEPA training and networking events that have made us a pillar in the Bay Area - but also be on the lookout for some exciting new opportunities.
AEP is really about people helping people. While LinkedIn and webinars may help get your name out there and provide some of the continuing education you need to thrive in your field, there is still no matching the value of face-to-face communication with the most experienced environmental professionals in the Bay Area. In 2016, your local AEP board will work to provide the best services possible to its members. However, the relevancy and success of AEP is and always has been dependent on the help and involvement of our members. As we continue to plan our events schedule for the year and make arrangements for the 2017 state conference, which will be held in San Francisco, I hope that you will consider helping yourself and other environmental professionals by being involved with AEP. It's fun!
President, San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of AEP
