Welcome to the AEP - San Francisco Bay Area Chapter.
The Association of Environmental Professionals promotes the practice of the California Environmental Quality Act. Our mission is to provide vital, up to date information to aid you in your efforts to promote sound environmental analysis, public outreach, and decisions. To create an atmosphere of open discussion between the public, private, and non-profit sectors. We as environmental professionals balance the pressures between the natural and built environments and provide common sense guidance to clients, stakeholders, and regulators.
You are an environmental professional in the most fascinating and complex time for the profession. We've seen record temperatures on the top and bottom of the thermometer. Our housing stock is extremely low and there will be renewed pressure on open space and natural resources. Energy needs may stretch beyond renewables development and spurn natural gas exploration and fracking. Perhaps most importantly we face a fork in the road in our cities: one direction leads to density and infill, the other to sprawl.
How should the future look?
It is no one person's job to decide alone. But certainly you play a role in how decisions take shape. SF Bay Area AEP endeavors to give you access to the information and people that will lead you to the best outcomes. This is one of many ways that the Board and I plan to give you real value in your AEP membership.
We want you to have fun too.
We plan and host events at least monthly - speaker panels, happy hours and networking, and outdoor excursions to see the environment up close. Our state regional conferences shine a spotlight on micro and macro issues that affect your daily work. And most importantly we provide a platform for you to connect with like-minded people.
We encourage your ideas too. Call my personal cell phone number anytime you want to share your ideas.
President, SF Bay Area AEP
