The Massachusetts Coastal CoalitionJoe's Role: Executive Director
The Massachusetts Coastal Coalition (MCC) is a nationally recognized 501c3 non-profit whose members are stakeholders interested or affected by flood hazards. The MCC mission is simple: educate, advocate, and inform professionals and stakeholders regionally and nationally on flood hazards.
Joe established the MCC on February 2, 2012 as the Marshfield Citizens Coastal Coalition (MCCC) as a means to better communicate coastal hazards and information about coastal infrastructure to citizens. Originally focused on only local coastal infrastructure issues, the MCCC became experts in informational outreach on flood insurance and mapping issues after the passage of the Biggert-Waters Act of 2012 (BW-12). Since then, the MCC has grown its knowledge base, established a formal Board of Directors, and became a 501c3 organization.
With unique products and services, the MCC continues to serve stakeholders and communities first. Executive Director, Joe Rossi, travels the country each year to speak at various national conferences. The MCC is always growing and looking for new members.
