Dear CFAEP members and friends,
I am honored to serve as President of CFAEP for the 2013-2014 year. This is a very exciting time for the CFAEP as we are hosting the FAEP Annual Conference in September. The Conference will include technical sessions, expo, poster competition, and many networking opportunities. This conference provides the platform for professionals and students working in a wide range of environmental specializations to come together and present recent successful projects, lessons learned, and new techniques and ideas. This year's conference will focus on three tracks: Contamination/Remediation, Biological/Ecological, and Environmental Permitting/Policy. The Board Members and the Conference Committee are hard at work to ensure that this Conference will be one of FAEP's best.
In addition to the Conference, the CFAEP will continue hosting luncheons every other month. Recent speakers have featured Scott Kearney, P.E. from Wawa, Inc.; Florida Department of Environmental Protection Personnel; St. Johns River Water Management District Personnel; Kennedy Space Center Personnel; Lisbeth House from Lockheed Martin; and Nick Albergo from HSA Engineers. On alternating months, we will host networking social events at restaurants around the area. This is a great opportunity to mingle with other professionals in a casual atmosphere. Please let any Board Member know if you have a suggestion for a future lunch speaker or a venue for an event.
The Board Members are committed to growing this organization and supporting its members. Please let us know if you have suggestions or would like to become more involved. Thank you and I look forward to a great year!
