The Houston EEB Communications committee was formed to ensure the opportunities and benefits of EEB are appropriately communicated to all stakeholders, with the right message for the right audience.

Communications

Short-term goals

  • To further develop this website platform where all material produced by EEB Houston can be effectively shared.
  • The committee is working with other committees to develop various tools, processes and real world case studies.

Mid-term action plans and goals

  • An action plan is being created to develop and maintain research and papers on the benefits of EEB among research institutes and universities, including a long-term funding strategy.
  • A second action plan will focus on the development of a long-term communications plan, particularly around public speaking opportunities and outreach, case studies, the development of a speaker’s bureau, video and written testimonies from high profile individuals in the Houston market, and social media.

  • Over 12 case studies have been compiled as of August 2015.
  • Speakers bureau meeting system have been set up to enable EEB Houston members to communicate and discuss EEB in the city more easily.
