NER Forum....
The Northeast Region has the advantage of having many chapters in close proximity to each other, yet at times, it can seem like we're all a world apart. To help open more collaboration among the region, we've set up a page on the Northeast Region Forum for chapters to post their public events. As you all know, many of our chapters host speakers, hands-on trainings, social events, etc., but getting the word out to nearby EWB members isn't always easy. We hope this forum will make it easier for collaboration. In addition to posting updates on the forum, you can also subscribe to different pages and receive e-mails when updates are made.

Please register yourself as a member.  If you have any questions about the forum, please contact Alexander Aman (
