Mark Hague will discuss the work of the Environmental Protection Network (EPN).
The Environmental Protection Network was launched in January 2017 to harness the expertise of former EPA career staff and confirmation-level appointees from multiple administrations to provide an informed and rigorous defense against efforts to undermine the protection of public health and the environment.
EPN volunteer scientists, attorneys, engineers, economists, and others are uniquely qualified to analyze and explain the dire consequences of proposed EPA budget cuts, regulatory rollbacks and policies and legislative actions.
Mark Hague, EPN Board Member
In January 2017, Mark Hague retired as Regional Administrator of EPA Region 7 after 37 years at the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C. and Kansas City. Mark was appointed Region 7 Regional Administrator in November 2015, after having served as EPA Region 7 Deputy Regional Administrator since 2011. In addition, from September to December 2014, Mark served as Acting Deputy Chief Financial Officer at EPA.
As Regional Administrator, Mark led Region 7’s 500+ professional and technical employees responsible for implementing environmental programs in Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas and nine Native American Tribes. He served as the primary liaison to the public and elected officials in the Region. Mark worked with State and local environmental leaders to ensure environmental and health protections throughout the region, and engaged citizen groups and non-governmental organizations on EPA program issues. Mark served as a member of the EPA, State and Tribal E-Enterprise for the Environment governing board which worked to modernize systems supporting environmental program implementation across the nation.
As Deputy Regional Administrator, Mark was instrumental in implementing approaches to streamline and modernize business practices in Region 7; an approach that was adopted across EPA. During his EPA career, Mark held a variety of leadership positions including Director of the Region 7 Enforcement Coordination Office, Acting Assistant Administrator for Policy and Management, and Senior Indian Program Manager.
