The Outreach Committee coordinates the Association's informational activities. The Committee promotes public education about biosolids management options, creates communication and education materials that translate the technical science commissioned by the Research Committee, and provides continuing education programs for members.
Recent achievements of this Committee include:
- Created an easy to understand, infographic based brochure that communicates the results of a risk analysis on pharmaceuticals and personal care products
- Published the monthly member spotlights for the Biosolids eBulletin newsletter, to highlight member achievements, program successes, and other interesting member stories.
- Participated in NW Biosolids new website design team and created content for the website
Future goals for the Information & Education Committee include coordinating a national effort to update the wikipedia page for biosolids and evaluating if a mentorship program would be useful to biosolids managers in the NW Biosolids network.
