CONNECT

Attend Lunch Meetings

How to Make the Most of Your Membership
Monthly lunch meetings are a great opportunity to network, have a great meal,  and learn about various topics like climate change initiatives, new technologies, rule updates and more. 

Attend Networking Events

Networking events are held about every other month and are a great opportunity to unwind with co-workers and colleagues as well as make new connections. It's also a great way to meet people that you work with regularly over the phone or email.

Attend Board Meetings

All members are welcome to attend the board meetings, held every other month. Share your ideas, volunteer to help on committees, or just observe. No need to RSVP, but you may want to double check the location, as they are subject to change.

Attend the Spring Picnic

The annual Spring Picnic is another member appreciation event created so that we have a event that members can bring friends and familty to. There is free food and plenty of activities and games sure to provide entertainment for everyone.

Join the Women in STEM Group

The Women in STEM Workshop sparked the creation of the Women in STEM Sub Group. This group is comprised mostly of women in the environmental field. We have a group Facebook page for sharing ideas and get together in small groups occasionally.

Attend Falliday

Falliday is the premier TBAEP event. As a member appreciation event it is free for members who register to attend. Falliday is held in November at the T Pepin Hospitality Center. Enjoy great food, raffle prizes, photo contest winners, and great company!

GIVE BACK

Support a Student Lunch

Students are able to attend TBAEP monthly lunches at a discounted rate largely due to donation made by other members. Just select the option on your lunch registration and the quanitity that you'd like to sponsor.

Volunteer With Us

There are many ways you can volunteer with TBAEP.  Perhaps the biggest way is to join the board or join a committee. We also have community service events throughout the year. 

Support a Student Chapter

The student chapters need people who are involved with the schools to act as liasons and sponsors. The student chapters also host monthly meetings that require working professionals to volunteer their time and experience. 

Participate in Raffles

Raffles are held at most of the events. Student chapters typically run the raffles and bring the proceeds back to their student chapter funds. Prizes vary and are usually in the $25 - $50 range.

Donate to Rising Star Scholarship

The Rising Star Scholarship is offered to two students per Spring and Fall Semester. The fund currenlty has an endownment target that will allow it to generate enough interest to be self-sustaining.

Sponsor Us

Sponsoring a lunch, a networking event, Falliday or a special event helps us to provide great venues and food selection for members. Its a great way to get the word out about an upcoming project or new technology your company is working on. 

Get Involved

Make a Board Nomination

Board elections happen March/April each year. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping to make a positive difference and have an active role at TBAEP events submit a nomination for the TBAEP Board.
