Hello MAC-IECA Members! I hope that 2017 is treating everyone well. We are in the dog days of summer now where the humidity is unbearable and the heat just won’t quit. Not to worry, the MAC has some great events planned for this year that are sure to help you keep your cool.

The MAC hosted another IECA Roadshow event last week in the nations capitol. The Washington, DC Roadshow focused on Urban Stream Restoration. IECA and the Mid-Atlantic Chapter partnered with the District Dept. of Energy & Environment (DOEE), DC Water and the Urban Forestry Administration (UFA) and offered a one-day workshop to regional attendees. The morning featured technical sessions and talks from industry experts and the afternoon featured field trips to multiple urban stream restoration projects throughout DC. Attendees used #IECARoadshow to document the event on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. It was an excellent event and I am looking forward to next years Roadshow.

Our chapter is always growing, evolving and expanding. We look forward to improving the experience of all of our members and making the MAC the largest and most rewarding chapter in IECA. As always if you have any feedback that you would like to share with either myself or the Board of Directors please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We here at the MAC hope to see you all very soon. Thank you again for the support and I look forward to seeing everyone at one of our events this year!
