Conference Committee: Sarah Richards, Lisa Breslof, David Stolarz, Meryl Kafka, Lou Siegel, Beth Ritter, and Tom Greene
Members of the Conference Committee help to plan and carry out NYSMEA's annual conference, which often attracts over 100 marine educators during a weekend around the beginning of June.  We need volunteers both before the conference, to suggest ideas for themes, speakers, field trips, and workshop leaders... and during the conference, to help register attendees, set up exhibitors' tables, post signs, manage items during the silent and live auctions, and to generally help keep the conference running smoothly. 

Membership Committee: Sarah Richards, Lisa Breslof, David Stolarz
The Membership Committee assists in recruiting and welcoming new members and keeping track of the membership list.  Members also update and send out reminders of membership renewals and keep the email, address and telephone lists up-to-date and current.
 


Public Relations (PR) Committee: Gene Ritter, Lane Rosen, David Stolarz, Lou Siegel
The PR Committee works to promote NYSMEA and its mission.  As a member of the PR Committee, we need your help to draft and send press releases, identify ways to introduce NYSMEA to wide audiences, plan and execute events, and build partnerships.  PR Committee members are needed to attend events, such as conferences, networking parties, and exhibit shows on behalf of NYSMEA and spread the word!  


Education Committee: NYSMEA's primary goal is to educate others about our world of water, both fresh and salt.  The Education Committee reaches out to New York educators, those who teach Pre-kindergarten to lifelong learners, in order to promote marine education. Share NYSMEA opportunities and marine education techniques with formal and informal educators alike.
