CONSERVATION COMMISSION CERTIFICATE TRAINING PROGRAM

The Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions (MACC) announced that it has awarded Marie Elwyn associated with the Shirley Conservation Commission, a Certificate of Achievement for successfully completing eight units of MACC's Fundamentals for Conservation Commissioners certificate training program.


The Fundamentals program provides conservation commissioners and others with the basic knowledge and practical tools essential to carrying out many responsibilities of administering the Wetlands Protection Act and for open space planning and protection. Such training promotes sound, consistent fact-based decision-making and builds respect for commission determinations. MACC's training program is the only comprehensive program offered to those involved with the Wetlands Protection Act and open space planning.


By achieving her certificate, Marie has shown dedication to the good work of the conservation commission to protect our natural resources for current and future generations.
