EPIC U.S. Board Meets in St. Maarten

The Board of the United States-based chapter of Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) held its annual retreat this past weekend in St. Maarten. EPIC U.S. was established in 2000 and works throughout the West Indies conducting research and community-based conservation projects.


The seven Directors were able to visit sites of projects on both sides of the island being conducted by EPIC U.S. and partner organization EPIC St. Maarten and meet with Love the Lagoon Project Manager Rueben Thompson. The Board also addressed issues related to the governing framework and conducted an assessment of accomplishments related to the organization’s strategic plan.
