BCONE operates through the interaction of its Executives, the Board of Directors and Committees. All BCONE members are encouraged to engage in this dynamic and energetic organization by joining a committee. BCONE committees provide opportunities for individual members to contribute to its growth and promote the redevelopment industry. Joining a committee also provides additional opportunities for members to network with other industry professionals, to build professional relationships, to get additional exposure for your business, and to build your resume.
In addition to our primary committees below, BCONE also has sub-committees for the governance of the organization, to promote regional expansion of the organization in New England, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware/Maryland, to organize specific events, to manage our scholarship program, and others. Please contact BCONE if you are interested in joining any of our committees.

Sharing information about successful practices with stakeholders across the brownfields redevelopment community will maximize the benefits of local, State, and Federal brownfields resources.
