Upcoming Steering Committee Meeting – Tuesday, June 19th 6:00pm-7:30pm

Aloha ECDPH Members!

We are holding our first Steering Committee Meeting since the 2018 DPH State Convention. This meeting will be largely introductory and logistics related. Our Steering Committee meetings have been and will continue to be open to others to join and listen in. This meeting will be limited in scope to the business of the Steering Committee outlined in the agenda below.

We will begin with a brief introduction to the Zoom Video Conferencing App. It has consistently been rated the best app for remote meetings with features that conveniently allow for orderly and efficient communication. Once everyone on the call has a cursory understanding of the app, we will move into the rest of the agenda. We will be using this technology for General Membership meetings as well in order to further our goal to be as inclusive as possible, while still making progress on our goals for the term.

We all live within the Environment and it should and could be everyone’s main concern. I look forward to welcoming all voices and to many productive meetings  over the next two years.

Please email us at with any questions.

See you there!

Lana Olson
Chair, ECDPH
