Join SWEP-MA for a full year of events, including these:
Join SWEP-MA for a screening of the beautiful and moving documentary Chasing Ice on Thursday, February 27!
An award winner at over 30 film festivals around the world, including Sundance, SXSW, and the Seattle Film Festival, Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.
In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

SWEP-MA has partnered with Click & Pledge, a company specializing in serving non-profit organizations, to provide secure online payment processing for our members' convenience. We're sure you'll like the convenience of this new option we've added.
Note: Credit card transactions processed through SWEP-MA's Click & Pledge's payment processing system sometimes incur an extra $1.00 ‚Äì $2.00 charge that appears on your credit card statement as a foreign transaction fee. Whether you are charged this extra fee depends on which of Click & Pledge's transaction-processing gateways your credit card company puts the charge through. Click & Pledge is an American company; SWEP-MA is an American organization; and the transactions are conducted solely in U.S. dollars, however neither SWEP-MA nor Click & Pledge charges the fee and neither can prevent it. If you receive a charge for this foreign transaction fee, you should be able to have it reversed by asking your credit card provider to remove it. We apologize for this occasional inconvenience and are working to resolve it.
