“As a volunteer-based Association, the support of our members is vital, and is directly linked to the value we can deliver to our membership. Please consider becoming a member, volunteering on a committee or serving on the Board, attending and/or sponsoring events and activities, spreading the word about ESAM to other potential members, and reaching out to us with feedback, recommendations and suggestions – we are always open to new and innovative ideas.

This year, the Board will further integrate professional development and networking activities across the region, and facilitate communication and cross-pollination of ideas, trend analyses and innovations. As a regional voice, we will work hard to ensure we are hearing and accurately representing the interests of the environmental industry throughout the Maritimes, advocating on behalf of all our members, and being accessible as a resource to our membership.

On behalf of the Association, thank you for your continued support.”
