Volunteer with EENC

Want to get involved with EENC?  EENC is always looking for help to help with committees, action projects, and special events!  Volunteering is great way to help other educators across our state, share your voice to help EENC better serve our professional community, and it's a chance to get to know some really cool people.

Current Opportunities

Policy Committee

Join the Policy Committee to help us create our Advocacy Plan. This plan will identify legislative priorities as well as non-legislative advocacy opportunities and provide a roadmap for organizational engagement. This opportunity is for anyone interested in advocacy for environmental education as a field. We want your skills and knowledge if you are a policy expert, have legislative advocacy experience, or love building relationships. We also want your thoughts and energy if this is something you want to learn more about!

Overarching Goals:

  • Create an advocacy plan for EENC

  • Advocate for environmental education policy initiatives

  • Build relationships with decision makers

  • Establish connections with current policy advocates who can include EE in their policy pushes

  • Include non-board member volunteers

Membership expectations: 

  • Attendance 1, 1-hour meeting per month

  • Estimated time commitment: 2-3 hours per month

  • Research policies, review documents, and prepare for meetings

    Contact Brian Wuertz to get involved in this committee.
