Meet and hear from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new Regional Administrator. On February 14, 2022, Dr. David Cash became Regional Administrator for EPA Region I.  Dr. Cash brings a wealth of experience to EPA here in New England, based on his interest in harnessing science, innovative policy, and participatory decision-making to solve environmental challenges.  Prior to his appointment, Dr. Cash was the Dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston.  

Dr. Cash also spent a decade in Massachusetts state government where he held a range of senior positions, working to implement environmental and energy policy.  As Assistant Secretary of Policy in the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs in Governor Deval Patrick’s Administration, he was an architect of a range of nation-leading climate, clean energy and environmental justice policies.  All of these initiatives were grounded in the notion that wise environmental policy, economic policy and policies for equity can and should go hand-in-hand.  He then served as a Commissioner in the Department of Public Utilities, followed by serving as the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection.  Join us to learn more about EPA Region I’s efforts to implement EPA’s 2022-2026 Strategic Plan , address climate change, and improve the quality of New England’s environment.

For the safety of members, staff, and the community, BBA programs are open only to those who abide by the BBA COVID Policy. Please read the full policy here .
