Brent BarnesOther09/20/1810/31/18Census Outreachin processtruetrueAll state agencies are being asked to directly support outreach for the 2020 census. As we have little direct contact with the public, Sheida and I think that using our distribution lists and website would be the most logical mechanism for this. The fear is that an undercount will occur if the census is not marketed which would result in lost federal funding to the state and programs. If you have other ideas let me know. My thought is that Julia should be involved with the work group meetings that they will schedule. I am attaching a rough draft work plan and the summary OFM census document. If you could take a look at what I wrote, modify, add and think about time lines that would be great.not

I was wondering if you could create a folder where people could either drop or provide links to, their presentation. Even if people save their presentation to a different place in Box, in a "collective" Box presentation folder, we can use the "weblink" option to point to presentations in their original locations (so, this avoids copying a presentation twice in Box).

I am starting with you guys, the communication team, since this is about improving communications. But I realize this involves Jen Burke too. Let me know how you would like to proceed!

I’ll also have the partner engagement strategy in the works during November and December (though, you’re on the team for that one). This is mostly just a heads up since it looks like there will be lots of AA pieces you’re reviewing and all of your ongoing Orca work.

Subject: Guest Speaker with Harbor WildWatch

Hi Cathy,
I'm reaching out to you about a potential guest speaker opportunity with our non-profit, Harbor WildWatch. We are based in Gig Harbor and aim to inspire stewardship for the Puget Sound and greater Salish Sea through equitable environmental education opportunities. We have a monthly science social series (Cocktails & Fishtales) for adults 21 years and over to foster discussions about environmental science and natural resource topics. As part of this, we invite local guest speakers to join us for the evening and lead a presentation on a relevant topic of their choosing.
We would be honored if yourself, or another team member at Puget Sound Partnership, would join us as a guest speaker at Cocktails and Fishtales in 2019. This presentation could be about PSP's programs and the state of the Puget Sound — whether this is the work PSP is conducting for local ecosystem recovery, policymaking, evaluating the health of the Puget Sound, or another relevant topic.
Generally speaking, our programs have 30-50 individuals who join us and presentations last for about an hour. Cocktails and Fishtales takes place on the third Wednesday of the month. The program begins at 5:30 p.m. and goes until 7 p.m. (with the presentation itself beginning at 6 p.m.). The gatherings are usually casual, and those who join us are well-informed, engaged, and ask some great questions. As Harbor WildWatch is a small non-profit, our budget for these programs isn't substantial, but Cocktails & Fishtales does offer guest speakers a venue and an engaged audience to discuss important topics with.
Available dates in 2019 are as follows:
• Wednesday, May 15
• Wednesday, July 17
• Wednesday, August 21
• Wednesday, September 18
• Wednesday, October 16
• Wednesday, November 20
I am also more than happy to discuss this over the phone with you at your convenience. I am still planning venues for the individual dates, but the programs will take place locally in Gig Harbor at a local restaurant, taproom, or the Harbor History Museum.
Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to discussing this with you further.
Thank you,
So Harbor WildWatch can advertise the speakerjon.bridgman@psp.wa.govtruetruetruetrue

Sheida SahandySpeech - writing (attach outline)11/08/1811/26/18Talking Points for the Nov 29 Oak Harbor Clean Water Facility Ribbon CuttingassignedtruetrueSheida needs someone to write talking points for her.

Executive Director Sahandy,

It is with great pride that I am contacting you today to officially let you know the new Oak Harbor Clean Water Facility is commemorating construction completion and facility startup. As a key partner in this project, I am writing to invite you to our upcoming ribbon cutting event.
• Date/Time: Thursday, November 29, 2018, at 1:30 p.m.
• Location: Oak Harbor Clean Water Facility, located in Windjammer Park in Oak Harbor

As you have been an integral participant in the success of our Clean Water Facility, we would like to invite you to celebrate this important milestone and, in particular, to be a key individual representing an agency who helped bring this project to life.
Beginning in 2010, the City of Oak Harbor embarked on a community-driven process to identify a long-term solution to treating wastewater for Oak Harbor. In 2012, the Windjammer Park location was selected. Construction on the facility began in 2015 and for the past three years the City of Oak Harbor has been working to construct, test, and make the facility operational. The Environmental Protection Agency, Washington Department of Ecology, Island County, and the City of Oak Harbor have contributed to the funding of this project.
The new wastewater treatment facility will:
• Deliver long-term, reliable service to Oak Harbor,
• Reclaim valuable resources from wastewater, and
• Serve as an important element for other projects that will help revive Oak Harbor’s downtown waterfront, such as the improvements coming to Windjammer Park next summer
We hope that you will be able to join us on November 29 as we celebrate the completion of this important City of Oak Harbor project. Enclosed is an invitation for the event.

In the coming days, Kerri Franklin, from our public outreach consultant group EnviroIssues, will contact you about the possibility of speaking at this event and coordinate details if you are interested. In the meantime, if you require additional information, please contact Kerri at or 206-922-6260.
