The Outreach Committee is responsible for developing relationships with relevant regulatory, governmental, non-profit, and private organizations in order to advocate for the continuation and growth of science-based beneficial use of biosolids. The Outreach Committee will work closely with the Membership Committee to provide support to members on regulatory and political issues.
The Membership Committee is responsible for ensuring that NWB is aware of and responsive to member needs. The Membership Committee will work closely with the Education, Outreach, and Research Committees to ensure that membership needs are represented in all organizational efforts. In addition, the Membership Committee will work with the ED to recruit new NWB members.
Northwest Biosolids strives to be the Pacific Northwest regional voice for biosolids, and to share and advance knowledge through collaboration with local universities. This access to research allows NWB to have an informed voice in regulation development, best management practices, and outreach to our communities. The Research Committee works with the University of Washington, Washington State University, Oregon State University, University of Arizona, University of British Columbia, Thompson Rivers University and other research institutions throughout the Pacific Northwest to develop and fund research projects on biosolids use and its effects on the environment. The Research Committee works with the Education Committee and Membership Committee to ensure NWB is providing content that our members want and that the research deliverables are communicated effectively.
