2016 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook - Sign Up for Your Listing

The Academy invites you to sign up for a listing in the 2016 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook. We are releasing the Guidebook in both electronic and print format to make this year's edition easier to use and easier to distribute to individuals and organizations looking to connect with environmental specialists. We are expanding the content that each listing receives – enabling web links in the e-version and providing more room to post information on your specialties in both versions. We expect to print and distribute the new publication more widely than we have in the past, with a special focus on outreach at the trade events and conferences we attend during the year. We are also planning an expanded role for the Guidebook in making federal, state, and local agencies aware of the capabilities of our members in helping deal with current environmental engineering needs.

Ask your organization to reserve its space by April 15, 2016. It's great exposure for a low cost. For details, email Sammi at JSOlmo@aaees.org. To download the reservation form, click here.

2016 Who's Who and Resource Guidebook

BCEEs, BCEEMs, BCESs, and AAEES Members: The 2016 editions of Who's Who in Environmental Engineering and Science and the Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook are currently in production and will be available mid-June. Digital versions are automatically sent via email to all members, but you must opt in to receive hard copies. If you received hard copies of these publications last year, then you are already opted-in and will automatically be mailed the print editions. If you only received the digital versions and would like to opt in for the hard copies, please email YMoulden@aaees.org by May 31st with your request.

3,2,1 ACTION!

In the coming months, we will be updating our current "Value of Certification" video. Since we highly value the opinions of our Academy members, we are asking that you take a moment to email us any ideas or suggestions you may have regarding the contents of a new video. This type of marketing piece is an extremely effective tool in getting our story out there and communicating the impact certification has on one's career. Please send any feedback to Marisa at MWaterman@aaees.org.

Student Chapter Makeover

Here at The Academy, we spent the past several months revamping our student chapter program. After fine tuning several aspects of the program, we are ready to work with people majoring in environmental engineering or environmental science to establish new student chapters in the US and across the globe. Please pass the word on to any of your contacts at universities that may be interested. Email Marisa at MWaterman@aaees.org for more information regarding student chapters.

2016 IWA Project Innovation Awards
