This EBC program is the first in an annual EBC program series of five meetings with the leadership teams of the four regional offices and the headquarters of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP). These programs provide EBC members, municipal officials, and other attendees from throughout Massachusetts with the opportunity to hear from the leadership of each of the four DEP regional offices, and the headquarters team.
This first meeting will feature Deputy Commissioner Gary Moran and the leadership of the Central Regional Office and focus on the important issues and priorities of Central Massachusetts.
Thank you to our Collaborating Organization:
