This is to solicit from you examples of your sterling writing for our next newsletter, which we’re hoping will hit the e-street by this summer. Anything in the realm of environmental transactions and brownfields is fair game. You know you’ve been itching to share your knowledge re: the latest developments in these arenas with your peers; here’s your big chance. Our newsletter has a wide circulation: ETAB’s circulation list now boasts 456 members, and links to the past month's SEER Committee newsletters are included in the monthly Section e-news, which is distributed to Section members. Plus, recent Committee newsletters are listed on on the Section's homepage, printed copies are displayed at Section programs such as the Spring and Fall conferences, and links to Committee newsletters are posted on the Section’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and sometimes to the Section’s LinkedIn discussion group. Republication of articles first published elsewhere is not encouraged, but is certainly an option. The better we inform each other, the better practitioners we'll be (not to mention the glory that will envelop you for publication in such a periodical). To give you a sense of what’s been covered, here’s a list of our newsletter topics going back to December 2012:
