This January, members of the Florida Association of Environmental Professionals (FAEP) reelected PPM District Manager Amy Guilfoyle as president of the association. This is Guilfoyle’s second presidential term in the chapter.
Guilfoyle brings to this role fifteen years of professional experience as an environmental scientist, including expertise with environmental due diligence, contamination assessment, groundwater and soil remediation, UST closure, as well as extensive regulatory knowledge. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Central Florida.
The FAEP, an affiliate of the National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP), provides networking, education and training opportunities for environmental professionals in the state of Florida. The association advocates for high ethical and technical standards across environmental industries, and includes professionals from the fields of biology, geology, environmental engineering, law, and wetlands, among others. Members of the association enjoy access to a network of over 3,000 industry professionals across the state.
Guilfoyle’s primary goal for 2016 is to further grow membership and increase participation in local chapter events. By promoting membership growth, the FAEP can bring stronger educational and professional opportunities to its members. One such opportunity is the annual FAEP conference, held each September. This two-day interdisciplinary conference gathers professionals from across the state to discuss industry trends and current events and to share best practices.
