IECA members: We are halfway through my Environmental Communication class this semester at the University of Cincinnati. Thanks to all of you who responded when contacted by my students with questions about your IECA membership (see list of members who responded below). You made a very positive impression on the students--much appreciated. This is how we encourage and nurture tomorrow's environmental communication professionals.
So--Here we go with IECA Excursion #5--the first of three excursions where students will explore and construct the "IECA Twitterverse"!
Excursions 5, 6, and 7 will ask you to take a trip to the world of Twitter to understand the "twitterverse" of environmental communication and, more specifically, of the International Environmental Communication Association. You will discover environmental news, science, and communication Twitter handles that are the most followed by (or followers of) members of IECA.
Excursion 5 is a pilot assignment, a way to get you some experience in depicting the Twitter environment. We will focus on two Twitter handles: my own handle (@stevedepo) and the IECA handle (@theieca). Students with last name starting A-L will focus on @stevedepo, and last name starting M-Z will focus on @theieca.

IECA members and friends: I have just posted a call for applications for the next editor of ENVIRONMENTAL COMMUNICATION, the official journal of the International Environmental Communication (www.tandfonline.com/renc). Alison Anderson, the current editor, is in the middle of a three-year term that will expire at the end of 2016. We want to install the next editor by early in the calendar year to insure continuity in editorial leadership. The call appears in the jobs section of the web site, and will be circulated to members via e-mail as well.
This search is coming at an exciting time, as the journal will soon announce an expansion from four to six published issues per year, starting in 2016.
The search committee for the position will include Alison Anderson, former associate editor Laura Lindenfeld, and myself, with Exec Director Mark Meisner serving as ex officio member and providing support for the search.
