If you handle communications for any conservation partners, partnerships, or managed areas in the Southeast, please CONSIDER JOINING THE SOUTHEAST COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK. Use it to share important items that deserve a wider audience than you can currently reach.
The Network helps communications professionals and agency personnel do their jobs by rapidly spreading word of priority or actionable information to many people in the Southeast conservation community, using existing channels for communication (such as organization newsletters, websites, list serves). The Network exists to promote efficient and effective landscape scale communication - across jurisdictions and from top to bottom - concerning high priority and/or actionable conservation information and opportunities that transcend organizational boundaries. Eventually, the Network may also be used to communicate with “external audiences,” such as stakeholders, educators or the public.
For more information please see the invitation and charter below. To join or inquire further, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Southeast Communications Network invitation (June 2012)
On August 7, 2013, a national group of LCC and CSC communications professionals met online using an innovative Meetingsphere technology to capture the group's thoughts, insights and questions relative to communications needs on a regional and national level. As a trial tool to assist communicators spread across the country to share information online, a National LCC & CSC Communicators group has been created, where you can view all the notes, background materials, and presentations.
The national meeting builds on a regional meeting held on April 3, 2013. (see below)
