November 17, 2010

On Wednesday November 17, 2010 EACO hosted its first Women of EACO Pub Night at Marlowe’s in Richmond Hill. More than 30 women attended from member firms, and as well as some from companies that are interested in joining EACO. It was a fun night of networking, reconnecting with old colleagues and meeting new people in the environmental abatement industry.

The atmosphere of the night was friendly and supportive, and the general consensus among the women present was “why didn’t do this before?” Involvement in the industry we work in is important, and this event recognized the need for getting as many people involved as possible. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going and hold more events to encourage the involvement of all EACO members, including the females in the industry.

Thank you to Kristine White of Sporometrics for spearheading this event along with Jamie Ferrante of Ferro Canada, and of course Mary Thornburn of EACO.
