The New England Environmental Education Alliance was formed in 1980, with roots that extend back to 1966. That year, a handful of educators in the region decided to meet on an annual basis. Conferences were chaired by Chuck Roth, and hosted by a group of colleagues within the six New England states on a rotating basis. The conferences were small and the agendas informal. The goal was to facilitate communication and friendship among colleagues. In 1977, in an effort to increase participation, the responsibility for the conference was placed in the hands of a steering committee composed of two representatives from each of the six states. Conference attendance jumped from 30 people the previous year to 160 people in 1977. In 1980, the steering committee decided to incorporate the New England Environmental Education Alliance. The board of directors continues to be composed of two members from each New England state. The Alliance is interested in environmental education on a regional level and does not duplicate the contributions of the state organizations. The conferences continue to emphasize collegial interaction and collaborative learning. We invite you to become involved in your state organization and to get to know the state representatives on the NEEEA board.
