Community Participation

HMMH staff are active members and leaders in various communities and organizations, both related and unrelated, to our practice.  Many of the challenges our staff members take on through these efforts address our core mission of solving complex technical problems that affect our environments.  We applaud their efforts, and believe that engaged community members are more effective and empathetic consultants.

Professional Societies

HMMH encourages all employees to join and participate in activities sponsored by societies and organizations in fields related to their professions, both technical and administrative.  Such participation - which we strongly encourage - provides professional growth opportunities for our staff and creates an opportunity to be part of a wider network of professionals. Our staff have served as board members or chairs of many of these organizations.  HMMH also is a corporate member of various organizations through annual memberships.  Listed below are professional societies with which we are affiliated.

Community Organizations

HMMH appreciates the leadership and participatory roles served by many of our employees in a range of civic, environmental, educational and charitable organizations.  We recognize the energy and commitment made by employees who volunteer their personal time to causes that are important to them and their families. Listed below are some of the organizations and volunteer events in which HMMH staff have participated in recent years.

Charitable Donations

We are proud that we have contributed to a variety of charitable organizations, recognizing our passions, our commitment to the environment and our commitment to the communities in which we’re located.

  • Feeding America: People in every community face the risk of going hungry. For every $1 donated, Feeding America helps provide 7 meals to men, women and children facing hunger in our country. Feeding America works with large corporate donors to secure food and grocery products on a national level to distribute, to local food banks. The relationship that the Feeding America organization builds with larger corporations also helps facilitate a relationship between a local food bank and local grocery store, for example.
  • Institute of Noise Control Engineering: The Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA (INCE/USA) is a non-profit professional organization incorporated in Washington, DC. A primary purpose of the Institute is to promote engineering solutions to environmental, product, machinery, industrial and other noise problems. INCE/USA is a Member Society of the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering, an international consortium of organizations with interests in acoustics and noise control.
  • National Multiple Sclerosis Society: The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis.
  • Northeast Arc: Northeast Arc was created in the 1950s by parents of children with disabilities, who rejected the assumption that their children should be institutionalized. Today, we serve over 7,000 people annually in 150 Massachusetts cities and towns.
  • Partners for Rural Improvement and Development in Ethiopia (PRIDE): PRIDE is dedicated to improving the living conditions and quality of life in the rural highlands of Ethiopia. Founded by a group of volunteers in Boulder, Colorado, PRIDE promotes positive change in some of the poorest Ethiopian villages. PRIDE helps lay the foundation for sustainable development by focusing on improvements in education, clean water, and agriculture. PRIDE focuses its efforts on those areas with the greatest likelihood of breaking cycles of poverty.
