    I’d love to write an article for your site on the topic of Recruitment Marketing.

    Now more than ever, businesses need to learn the art of attracting and nurturing skilled individuals to join their team.

    What do you think? Would an article that details best practices for recruitment marketing be a value-add for your website? If so, I’d love to write the article and send it your way once complete.

    Many thanks for your time today,

    EOY – When are nominations open for the 2022 EOY? I would like to nominate Kathy Bricker who has had a significant career as a volunteer and professional protecting lands in Northern Michigan, as well as oceans around the world. Unfortunately, she has cancer and may not be around next fall. I am hoping the timeline will be earlier this year. Please advise.

    I am a student at Northwestern Michigan College and I am putting together a podcast for a research project for the end of the semester in my freshwater science class. My idea for my project was a podcast including indigenous people or people who work to protect treaty rights and conservation for the tribe. My project objective is to convey why people should care about conservation of water and sustainability. I was also going to add at the end small ways they could change their lifestyle to help improve and move towards restoration of the earth. If you are interested in participating or know anyone who would be interested, please let me know! I am planning on putting together a questionnaire and possibly meeting via zoom to be able to capture your input on this topic.

    If you know anyone who would be interested in participating let me know!

    Thank you!

He would like to share his thoughts and research with a of his writing of ‘Common Sense to Combat Climate Change’.

    Please know I will be unable to participate in this evenings award show due to an ongoing eye issue.

    I appreciate the work NMEAC has done and continues to do and I congratulate all the winners… except the Golden Bulldozer winner deserving little praise.

    I am INCREDIBLY HONORED and quite frankly gobsmacked to be nominated. The other nominees are STELLAR examples of how rich our region is in folks ‘doing the right thing’! I was such a fan of Greg’s, who often became my ‘what to do next’ official resource. He is GREATLY missed and yet, NMEAC’s Mission is so important to all, his legacy, as those before him, lives on to the benefit of our beautiful paradise. I’m sorry not to be able to attend this years celebration! GRATITUDE to ALL

    I received an email reportedly from June Thaden indicating that I had been nominated for your EOY award. I wanted to confirm that this email was authentic and not a prank from someone or a hack of some kind. Is this real?

    Hi team at NMEAC,

    I am Jason, a high school student from Cranbrook high school in Michigan. I am passionate about environmental issues and extremely interested in everything your organization stands for.

    Recently, my team and I are developing an app at the Launchx summer program for young entrepreneurs. Our app is called MVMNT. MVMNT strives to contribute to solving climate issues. On our app, we connect environmental activists and enthusiasts with organizations like you. You will be able to post information and events about your organization on our app, and users on our app in the Michigan area will be able to join your events or donate to you.

    Please let me know if you are interested. We will not charge organizations any money to be on our app. Also, if you are interested, would you be available for a quick online interview with our team, where we walk you through our idea and get feedback from you? We are striving to improve our app as much as we can so any feedback is helpful.


    Jason and the MVMNT team

    Hello, I’m reaching out to possibly set up an interview with someone from this environmental organization, I am a student conducting research with Dr. Sarah Mittlefehldt on a study that examines the risks and benefits associated with wood energy in Michigan, and different perceptions of those risks and benefits. Our goal is to provide a deeper understanding of how communities across Michigan have responded to woody biomass energy development.

    I would love to chat more about this, and would appreciate a way of contact!

    Thank you!

    Hey June. I have a ton of files somewhere regarding my time as chair and the primary project I worked on, that being the stopping of the land swap between the Homestead and Sleeping Bear which eventually led to the Conservancy buy-out and protection of sections of the Crystal River. Not sure when I’ll find the time to dig them up in the summer, but it would for a good winter project.

    Do you know of any environmental watch dog groups that work in the Charlevoix area. The EPA is planning to remediate the superfund site in town and I am interested in having some outside oversight of the project. Can your organization lead me in the right direction?

    Please contact TV 7 and 4 to counter their special report about the need for Hartman Hammond bridge, it is a series that started tonight March 1 2021. I am not an expert to speak about the many recent improvements to E-W corridor, but I am sure you can reach out to them to recommend a more objective and non-biased special report. I did contact their newsroom tonight.

    I am doing a profile on NMEAC for my college English class and I need to interview someone from NMEAC to include in my project. I was hoping to interview one of the board members, preferably Ann Rogers or Greg Reisig but any board member of NMEAC that is willing to be interviewed would be perfect! Please shoot me an email or give me a call. Thanks!

    Can’t hardly breathe.

    Biking around Logan’s landing, then Logan’s Pointe, then came back out

    to my fav. spot 4 birding, two guys getting out of trucks. Orange Vests. I asked what’s up…. they were there to design tree and brush removal and design the boardwalk going over the lake to continue the path.

    They are ripping out the home of Cedar Wax Wings, R. Wing B. B. , Red Starts, Tree Swallows, etc.

    They will have a Boardwalk Bridge right where the ducks migrate to and where the huge turtles have been undisturbed. Frick!!

    Their shortcut across that southern stretch of Boardman Lake will impact wildlife horribly.

    Hi There,

    I’m producing a documentary for PBS on FishPass and would love to get NMEAC’s perspective on the project by interviewing Ann Rogers next month in TC. Would Ann please email or call so we can set something up?

    If however, you prefer another spokesperson to do the interview, please email the contact information.

    Thanks so much for connecting the dots… and all that you do.

    Best, Dan

    A big thank you to Ann Rogers for your 4/02/20 forum piece in the Record-Eagle. A reminder that all the earth’s creatures, from microscopic bugs to humans, are related. We need to respect each creature’s place in the chain to keep it from falling apart. Thank you for stating it so simply.
