On February 26th, 2014 twenty members of the New Jersey Chapter of the Society of Women Environmental Professionals braved this never ending winter and made it out to the new members breakfast and annual meeting. The meeting was a great success, with new faces and those more well-known on the circuit, both, making appearances. NJSWEP was well represented as a new and exciting year began with the election of three new chairs.
The new chairs were elected by the members of SWEP as follows:
- Kavitha Subramaniam – New Scholarship Chair
- Stephanie Turkot – New Programs Chair
- Jillian Mooney – New Co-Chair
It was also a bittersweet time as we said farewell to one of our long-standing and iconic co-chairs, Jeanne Mroczko. After 5 years of service as the NJSWEP co-chair Jeanne will now be spending her time Master Gardening and helping out with NJSWEP’s many programs. NJSWEP is grateful of everything Jeanne has done over the last 5 years including helping facilitate the new website. Jeanne was also praised for her welcoming nature, kindness, and friendship.
There are many upcoming events that NJSWEP and Philadelphia SWEP will be organizing, for more information and details on upcoming events please visit the NJSWEP website, http://www.njswep.org/, and the Philadelphia SWEP website, http://swepweb.com/.
