Ascending Professionals Committee

Ascending Professionals are any professional working in the Environmental and/or Energy sectors for less than 10 years.

Mission Statement

The mission of the EBC Ascending Professionals Committee is to identify issues of concern to young (and new) environmental professionals. Issues include but are not limited to career and professional skills development, understanding existing and developing legislation and regulations, and networking. These issues are addressed by providing objective information from up-to-date and reliable sources including EBC member company officials, EBC committee chairs, and experts in skills development.

To implement this mission statement, the committee will:

  • Organize quarterly committee program planning meetings where committee members can network and plan upcoming committee programming.
  • Organize seminars, workshops on career and professional skills development skills and other topics of concern.
  • Organize networking opportunities for young environmental professionals to gather with their peers.
  • Participate in the EBC Career Fair and other programs and interact with students in environmental fields to provide information about careers in the environmental and energy industry.
