SWCS Southern New England Chapter

The Southern New England Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SNEC-SWCS) is a 501 (c) (3) organization whose purpose is to promote, educate and advance all phases of the science of conservation of soil, water, and all related resources. The SNEC-SWCS (Chapter) became a Charter Chapter on December 8, 1946 by a vote of the Soil Conservation Society of America (now SWCS) at their Council Meeting in Chicago, IL. A Petition signed by 20 petitioners to become a Chapter was dated December 7, 1946. Our Chapter incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on July 27, 1981 received IRS Tax-Exempt Status later in 1981. The Chapter covers the geographic area of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. A Board of Directors elected by the membership governs the Chapter. In addition, there is an Executive Director, Newsletter Editor, and UConn Student Chapter Advisor. There is a SWCS UConn Student Chapter and SWCS UMass Student Chapter, in which the SWCS SNEC will subsidize 50% of their SWCS Student membership fees.
