Editorial, Public Communication & Outreach - Indiana WEA

Editorial, Public Communication & Outreach

The Editorial, Public Communication & Outreach Committee is focused on educating students, teachers, and the general public on the importance of maintaining and improving our water environment. The committee strives to achieve this goal through recommending, developing, and assisting community groups in conducting public education programs, continue to be a sour of information for the WEF Junior Stockholm Award, and continue to improve relationships with like-industry associations. The committee develops and coordinates activities with other association and federation committees as well as with organizations outside of the association to facilitate broader participation and cooperation on issues of common concern and to mutually strengthen knowledge and understanding.

If you have any questions about the committee and would like to get involved please contact the Editorial, Public Communication & Outreach Chair, Karen Morris or Co-Chair, Andrew Thompson. You may also reach out for general inquiries here.
