You may have noticed our new look. Actually, it's our first real look, as opposed to temporary looks which is what we've had until now.
 
The logo is part leaf, part speech balloon, representing both the environment and communication. But it's subtle and distinctive as well. We hope you like it.

discounts, bargains, closeoutsFolks,

IECA now has an Organizational membership category that provides a discounted bulk membership option for any number of people from a single organization. We think NGOs, departments and firms might like this.

Also, time is running out on Founding memberships and the permanent renewal discounts that go with them...

See all our membership options at http://environmentalcomm.org/join-IECA.

The ‘Visualising Science and Environment Symposium’ held at the University of Brighton UK on 17-18 November 2011 turned out to be a fantastic two days of generous dialogue, debate and inspiring  presentations from a host of people working within the fields of science and environment  communication (see http://arts.brighton.ac.uk/research/research-conferences/visualising-science-and-environment-symposium).

IECA is now taking regular and associate memberships for 2012. Join now and your membership will be effective immediately (meaning you get an early start on the benefits).

And if you intended to take out a founding membership, but were just too busy, it's not too late. You can still do that in conjunction with a 2012 membership (and you'll get the discount).

All is explained here: http://environmentalcomm.org/join-IECA

To those of you going to NCA, have a good conference!

Calls, events, jobsIf you haven't been here in a while,  you should notice a few changes. Content from the old ECN web site has been migrated to the IECA web site. Plus we have been adding new features, including listings of IECA member blogs, calls for papers, etc., environmental communication events, and jobs. All of this is being set up so that members will eventually be able to post their own listings of these kinds of info right on the web site.
