NEFAEP is the Northeast Florida Chapter of Florida Association of Environmental Professionals (FAEP)
The Northeast Chapter of FAEP serves Jacksonville and surrounding areas including Nassau, St. Johns, Flagler, Putnam, Baker, Union, Bradford, and Alachua Counties.
NEFAEP holds informative monthly meetings covering a wide array of subjects in the environmental field including, remediation, water conservation and usage, emerging technology, emergency response, issues involving the St. Johns River, legal updates, RCRA, and other local environmental hot topics.
In 2017, monthly meetings will be alternated between lunch meetings with invited speakers and evening meetings to provide a time for members to network. Be sure to check out the Events page for upcoming events!
The Northeast Chapter also provides a spring conference giving in-depth information relating to an Environmental hot topic. For more information regarding our monthly meetings or spring conference, please see our Events Page.
All proceeds of the NEFAEP Chapter are used to further environmental education for local students. In 1998, NEFAEP started a scholarship fund with the goal of awarding a $25,000 endowment to one of the local universities. In 2002, the endowment was completed and awarded to Jacksonville University (JU). This endowment has been used by JU to help fund an upper division student whose major focus is environmental studies. Since 1999, NEFAEP also has awarded annual $500 direct scholarships to both JU and the University of North Florida (UNF). In 2005, FCCJ was included in our scholarship fund. The amount donated to each school has increased to $1,000. These scholarships are made possible through the proceeds from our monthly meetings, annual Spring Workshop, and contributions from sponsoring organizations. Our Chapter looks forward to continuing the development of the scholarship program in coming years. It is our hope that this program will provide a continued medium for professional contact and information exchange among our members, students, and academe.
