This EBC program is the third 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 will provide EBC members, municipal officials, and other attendees from throughout Massachusetts with the opportunity to hear first from Commissioner Suuberg of the DEP and then from the leadership of each of the five Mass DEP regional offices.

This third meeting will feature the leadership of the Northeast Regional Office and focus on the important issues and priorities of Northeastern Massachusetts.



Plan to attend and learn first-hand about the five most critical environmental issues for the state, the Northeast Region and each regional bureau chief for 2018 and beyond. With much of the DEP decision making taking place at the regional level, this Northeast Regional program will also provide an opportunity for attendees to hear from the leadership of the MassDEP Northeast Region Office as they discuss their hot issues and challenges.
