Communications Committee

If we sell you our land, remember that the air is precious to us, that the air shares its spirit with all the life that it supports. The wind that gave our grandfather his first breath also received his last sigh. The wind also gives our children the spirit of life. So if we sell our land, you must keep it apart and sacred, as a place where man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened by the meadow flowers.

--Chief Seattle

Chief Seattle's words inspire the Communications Committee in our work to protect the natural treasures of Washington State for generations to come.

The Communications Committee's mission is to promote and strengthen public awareness of the Washington State Chapter's work and to promote volunteer activities and upcoming events to our membership, donors and the public at large. We also spread awareness of our Chapter's legislative priorities and environmental successes. From promoting volunteer opportunities, to informing the public of the urgent issues facing the voters of Washington State, our work touches on all aspects of our Chapter's work and spans every Committee.

We communicate the Washington State Chapter's priorities and successes by:

  • Creating and distributing the Cascade Crest newsletter and the CrestOnline e-newsletter. Maintaining the Cascade Chapter web site and other social media mediums including the Chapter's Facebook page and Twitter page.
  • Encouraging the public, donors and current and potential members to participate in Chapter activities
  • Standardizing guidelines and processes across our communications outlets
  • Soliciting news items, articles and program announcements from Committee and Group Chairs, members and donors
