You're invited to partake in EWB-NER's first Professionals Workshop!
The workshop will provide a space for professional EWB members to come together and learn about others in our regions during a weekend devoted to the issues surrounding professional membership in EWB. We'll discuss current issues chapters are having, and draft up our thoughts to present to EWB-USA to better help the professionals at the regional level and beyond.
