VEEN March Newsletter: New VEEN Team Member, Member Mondays Social Media Campaign, and a Call for Nominations

Join us in welcoming our new VEEN Team Member!
We want to introduce our new Communications, Membership, and Events Consultant, Sarah Hooghuis (she/they). Sarah brings six years of experience as an environmental educator and a strong background in communications and outreach to this position. You may recognize them from previous roles held at Audubon Vermont, Shelburne Farms, or the ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. Please feel free to reach out to Sarah with any questions or comments related to membership, events, promotions, webinar topics, or collaborations. Sarah is especially interested in hearing about the needs of Vermont educators and seeing how the Network may be able to fill these gaps in support. 

New Social Media Campaign: Member Mondays

 We want to start highlighting our members on social media to show the community who the Vermont Education and Environment Network is. This will be a great way to not only advertise the strength of our Network, but also promote the incredible work of organizations and individual members like you. To do this, we created a short survey to get to know you a bit better. This includes a short description of your work, a bit about why you are apart of VEEN, and anything you would like us to promote to our social media followers. 
Please fill out this survey to be highlighted: Member Monday Survey
