IPSWICH RIVER WATERSHED ASSOCIATION INC
March 7, 2011
I volunteered with the Ipswich River Watershed Association after my sophomore year of college and it has made a significant impact on my career goals. Working with a nonprofit has been the most fulfilling job experience I've had so far and I credit this to the dedication of the staff at IRWA, especially Kerry Mackin and Trish Aldrich. Their enthusiasm for their work is contagious. IRWA has made amazing progress in protecting the Ipswich River and raising awareness in the local communities. I am impressed with the wide range of programs offered by IRWA throughout all four seasons and their emails are always a pleasure to open, unlike other mailing lists I am on. Overall, IRWA is an organization that is actually DOING something and they must continue to be supported.
