Welcome to the AEP Channel Counties Chapter serving Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. Our diverse geography and coastal influences along the Central Coast provide a rich backdrop for carrying out our charge to provide technical and social enrichment programs and services to our members.
We enjoy a balance of public and private sector environmental professionals and are host to active student chapters at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the UCSB Bren School of Environmental Management. We enjoy networking opportunities among professionals as well as students at our programs. We find it important to encourage and support students pursing environmental majors as they are our future professionals with many success stories to support that claim.
To support students in their academic studies we have established the Ned Rogoway Memorial Scholarship Fund. Follow the links to find out about Ned’s profound influence on environmental work in our Chapter, our current sponsors and awards, and how you can contribute to this important program of student support.
