Common Sense Nebraska

Since August of 2014, the Association has been a part of the Common Sense Nebraska Coalition.  Common Sense Nebraska is a diverse, Nebraska-based coalition consisting of organizations and entities that have united in response to the EPA’s “Waters of the U.S.” Rule; a regulatory proposal that would harm both rural and urban Nebraskans through the expansion of the EPA’s powers and authorities under the federal Clean Water Act. The coalition’s purpose is to build awareness and understanding of the EPA proposal and the impacts it would have on Nebraskans. More Info

Nebraska Industrial Council on Environment (NICE)

NICE is an unincorporated, entirely volunteer organization of environmental professionals who meet on a monthly basis (third Thursday of the month) to network and learn about current issues. There are no dues or fees. Benefits include the ability to learn from colleagues around the state about current environmental issues and different approaches to managing those issues. The membership is from various industries and parts of the state. The one qualifying requirement is that your organization is impacted by environmental regulations. Added NICE Member benefit is discounted registration at the annual MECC Conference in Kansas City which many of us feel is the best environmental conference of the year in this region. NEGFA is a member organization and the Executive Vice President attempts to attend most of the meetings. LinkedIn Information | Facebook Group
