We are always looking for articles for this great practitioner-based publication.  Consider providing our nationwide audience a bit of your professional experience and insight.  What we need is a MS Word document between 1,500 and 3,500 words with photographs, a short personal bio and a picture of you so our readers know who is telling them their story.  It is really important for this publication to represent all fields of professional endeavor and all areas of the country.  If you have an interesting subject or article written by someone else, let me know and we will try to republish it for our audience.

The NAEP Newsletter - News for the Environmental Professional - is now accepting advertising on a very limited scale. Advertising helps to offset the costs of producing the improved newsletter.

This is a cost effective way to reach them while supporting NAEP.
