MACC Official Certification

RJ Turcotte Receives MACC Official Certification

The Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions is a nonprofit organization dedicated solely to educating our Conservation Commission members and advocating for better wetlands protections at the state and local levels.

Although it is common for other Conservation Commissions to get their Commissioners certified, Nantucket has only had one Commissioner get fully trained and certified by MACC (Commissioner Seth Engelbourg) and two Town staff members. Last month, NLC’s own RJ Turcotte became the 4th Nantucketer to become MACC certified, with formal training in the State Wetlands Protection Act, how to draft orders of conditions, update local Bylaws, and handle wetland permit violations.

Congratulations, RJ!
