Take Us Out to the Ballgame(s)
And fireworks! Five environmental professional associations - AEG-NYP, AHMP-NJ, BCONE, LSRPA and NJSWEP - joined forces at Trenton Thunder’s home stadium on the Delaware River on the lovely evening of August 1, 2019. At this sold-out event, each of the five organizations was well-represented in the Yankee Club Suite, so there was a real opportunity to meet other professionals with whom we may not routinely connect.
Environmental compliance firms, drillers, law firms, cultural resource consultants, architects, City of Trenton and State of NJ officials, environmental scientists and engineers, students and data managers were all part of the high-energy group, sharing laughs, good beer and the obligatory hot dog or burger. Ken Haduch of ERM threw out the first pitch for us. On the field, we were treated to a no-hitter in the first game for a Trenton win, followed by an Altoona win in the second game, and fireworks to cap off the night. Yes, Boomer did stop by to high-five us.
BCONE was the new addition to this annual event and we were pleased to have members attend from CT, NJ, NY and PA. Treasurer Geoff Forrest of Dresdner Robin represented the BCONE Board at the event. Almariet Palm of HRP Associates, Inc. came from CT for her first BCONE networking event.
Many thanks to the sponsors of the event: EDR, Highground Industrial, and SGS North America, Inc., and to AWT Environmental for the drawing for a pair of Yankee tickets. A big thank you to the organizing committee, with members from each of the five organizations, and to professional event planner, Tiesha Green, for running such a successful event.
