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 10 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.
