The Massachusetts Society of Municipal Conservation Professionals (MSMCP) was formed to serve and support municipal conservation staff and to work to raise the level of professionalism through the exchange of information, the presentation of technical and scientific information, the promotion of professional staffing for all towns within the Commonwealth, and the encouragement of dialog among contiguous and regionally related Conservation Commissions and their staff.
MSMCP takes an active role in reaching out to communities in need of staff, offering advice on shared positions, establishing new positions, and training new personnel. Whenever possible, MSMCP can provide job descriptions and salary levels.
Through its network, MSMCP is committed to initiating and coordinating cooperative projects among staff in regionally related areas. In addition, MSMCP collaborates with Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MA DEP) and the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions (MACC) through joint outreach and workshop programs.
