TAEP - All News and Events

YEP (Young Environmental Professionals, a subgroup of TAEP) - Monthly Social Events



National Membership

The national organization is called NAEP (National Association of Environmental Professionals). For more information about this organization and membership for NAEP, please visit


National members who wish to continue to pay both national and local dues through the National headquarters may continue to do so when they receive their membership renewal notice for NAEP. However, the TAEP Board highly encourages National members to pay their local dues directly to the TAEP on a calendar basis to insure that the local chapter has a timely record of your membership status for the general meetings, to reduce the local paperwork, and to assist in dues tracking.


Please be sure that we have your current and preferred mailing address and e-mail address. If you have changed any of your contact information in the last year please update your profile in the Members Area of the TAEP web site. Please contact TAEP via e-mail if you have any problems accessing the Members Area.
