Member Spotlight

Cynthia Arnold

Coastal Plains Chapter Member Since 1995:

I first joined the Coastal Plains A&WMA Chapter when I moved to Pensacola in 1995 and subsequently became an International Member all thanks to my good friend and A&WMA mentor, Dennis Mitchell, who was one of the first friends I made upon moving here. Being actively involved in the organization has been incredibly rewarding, both personally and professionally.

In both big and small ways, my membership in A&WMA has been an integral part of my professional career, providing me with numerous opportunities to network, build relationships, make lifelong friendships, and enhance my credibility as an environmental professional. I value my membership because it provides opportunities for connection, education, and professional development.

Being an active member in the Chapter has given me the chance to give back through volunteering my time and efforts to assist in providing and promoting chapter activities and helping others along the way in their professional development.
