Virginia Department of Environmental Quality - Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program Office
Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program Outreach and Publications
Project Description as Proposed:
This task funds the Virginia CZM Program Outreach Coordinator position and printing and distribution of the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Magazine. The Coordinator is responsible for development and implementation of an outreach strategy for the Virginia CZM Program office which optimizes effective use of communication, education and marketing methodologies and tools to deliver key CZM messages and information to the programâ€™s target audiences - state, local and non-governmental partners, federal and state legislators, and the general public. The Coordinator also focuses on improving the Programâ€™s visibility by working with network partners and grantees to highlight Virginia CZM projects/initiatives through electronic and printed media, in addition to the magazine, e.g. fact sheets, websites, and signage, and through events, e.g. workshops and public exhibits.
During FY 09, the Coordinator will a) produce the Virginia Coastal Zone Management magazine and other program accomplishment and marketing materials, b) maintain the Virginia CZM website, c) produce displays and coordinate program exhibits, d) and work with Virginia CZM staff and partners to develop and provide CZM workshops, training and other events. The Coordinator will coordinate with and continue membership on groups and committees that promote networking with other coastal resource communicators and educators, such as the Virginia Resource Use Education Council, Chesapeake NEMO, Virginia Government Communicators, Virginia Naturally Partners and the Hampton Roads Alliance for Environmental Education.
