Members and friends:  I was asked by Nadarajah Sriskandarajah, organizer of COCE 2013, to introduce the conference keynote speaker, John Dryzek.  As part of my introductory comments, I posed the question, "What will IECA look like in 2018?"  Here is how I answered the question---
 
In 2018, five years from now, IECA will have:
 
*achieved three consecutive years in which revenue meets or exceeds expenditures
 
*increased its individual membership three-fold, to over 850 members, with at least a third of those members coming from non-academic sectors (education, practitioner, NGO, etc.)
 
*increased its organizational members to 25

I believe in IECA.
 
As I end my tenure as the first chair of IECA, I want to take a look back and note how far we’ve come together over the past five years—from IECA as a concept and hope to IECA as a reality and a force for social change.
 
In 2008, IECA was just an idea—a belief that environmental communication scholars, practitioners , and activists from all over the world should get together formally to share resources and try to make a difference in local communities.  The idea was shared in a couple of panels at two academic conferences—National Communication Association  (NCA) in San Diego and European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) in Barcelona, and a movement was born.

IECA members and friends:  Hi.  Three important things happened this week for our professional association:
1.  Vice-Chair Lee Ahern posted a draft Code of Ethics, and we fielded a productive range of comments about the substance of the code, as well as the role it might play in our association moving forward.  An important second conversation emerged about the need to make sure our policies and offerings truly reflect the "international" nature of our association.  In the coming weeks, a revised Code of Ethics will be discussed by the Board and, if approved, will be put before the membership for a vote.
