Promotion Subcommittee

The Promotion Subcommittee is currently meeting by Zoom on the first Thursday each month at  2:00 pm Eastern.    This subcommittee is seeking new leadership, so contact the NSC chair, Jennifer Collins if you are interested. The group communicates via a listserv and is looking for new members. 

Join the National Steering Committee: Promotion Subcommittee

Your Promotion Subcommittee advocates for you.  We “strut your stuff” to attract attention to the value of your program. We provide you with resources to put in front of more senior people so they can make supportive decisions about you. We work to generate “word-of-mouth” publicity for the deep knowledge and extensive relationship-network that is the essential strength of the 507 programs.  

The Promotion Subcommittee is working on promoting the 507 Programs to the small business community thru the new National SBEAP Twitter account.  Twitter messages will include workshop information, webinar opportunities and best management practices.  We are also reaching out to the Small Business Administration (SBA) Regional Advocates to encourage partnerships and environmental assistance referrals. The Promotional Subcommittee supports the Awards Program, Annual Training and promoting the SBEAP/SBO/CAP Annual Report.

This subcommittee also provides articles each month for the ASBO bulletin and Twitter content for @national_sbeap. Based on our guidelines for writing articles, ASBO articles are due to EPA by the third Thursday each month.  Tweets can be prepared anytime and sent to nlarson@ksu.edu. See the Twitter guidelines if you have questions. Contact the Chair if you have questions. We will continue to strengthen existing relationships, seek additional opportunities to parade your success before relevant audiences, and form new collaborations.
