President's Message

Hello fellow Environmental Professionals, 

We thank you for your interest in the Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP). AEP is a non-profit organization of professionals working to improve their skills as environmental and resource managers. AEP is the preeminent professional organization focused on the environmental review process including California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and various evolving policies on the local, state, and national level. 

There are abundant benefits to becoming a member of AEP. Our popular CEQA and NEPA Workshops provide updates regarding various components of CEQA and NEPA including recent court actions that influence how we approach document writing.  Members receive discounts when attending workshops, conferences, and programs and often earn continuing education credits under American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) and Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE). 

AEP‘s Legislative Committee closely tracks and responds to proposed CEQA legislation and provides information and guidance to AEP members. Members receive our annual CEQA Handbook, the comprehensively indexed ’go-to‘ reference volume of environmental documents. Finally, the AEP website is a tremendous resource, providing information about upcoming programs, legislative updates, and job opportunities. 

The core of our efforts in LA County are dedicated to presenting educational, technical and social programs to help you grow as an environmental professional. For 2024, we have an exciting slate of events in-store, including:

  • Young Professionals Virtual Mixer and Trivia Nights

  • Urban Hike Series

  • Advanced CEQA Workshop

  • Mentor Roundtable events with local university and college students

  • CEQA Essentials Workshop

  • NEPA Essentials Workshop

  • Legislative Update

  • Member Appreciation Events

  • Winter Holiday Party

  • And much more!

Please join us in making LA AEP and interactive and supportive organization. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation and encourage you to join our next event! 

Warmest wishes,

Meghan Gibson
