Elizabeth Roe
President, Eco Partners
Welcome to the new Eco Partners' newsletter. Every month we will send out an update on our company and environmental education efforts around the country.

I was recently asked to review entries for the SWANA 2013 Public Education Excellence Award. All of the entries highlighted excellent projects featuring the type of educational efforts we like to see happening around the United States and Canada. Both Leeann and I reviewed the entries and were reminded that, while eye-catching graphics add to the quality of an application, the information included is most important. An award-winning entry includes proper presentation of a project by following directions and cohesively conveying the details.

Last fall, I was elected to fill a position as SWANA's Communication Education and Marketing (CEM) Technical Division Vice Director. I am very excited about being a part of SWANA in this way, and I plan to run for a full term later this summer. I would appreciate your support.

Are You Talking to Me?
Monday, June 3, Elizabeth spoke at the Illinois Recycling Association's Annual Conference. She was on the panel "Communicating to Your Audience" with Marta Keane and Cassie Carroll. Her talk, "Are You Talking to Me? Crafting Messages Across Multiple Channels," focused on listening to your audience and then designing effective communications strategies.
