Recruiting season is not over: Refer a Friend to Apply for Board Certification

Recruit Photo

While you may think that the Academy's recruiting efforts are over when our annual deadline for applications rolls around at the end of March, that's not what happens. Instead, rather than putting our recruiting efforts on the back burner, we transition to recruiting for the rest of this calendar year through the first quarter of next year.

In other words, our search never ends. We need to continually find new, well-qualified environmental engineering and environmental science professionals who are looking to take that next step in their career path -- the path to board certification in their specialty.

Doing that requires input from our existing roster of certified engineers and scientists. We need your help. We need you to let us know when you encounter someone that you recognize as having the qualifications and knowledge that will enable them to pass the examination and/or peer review required to become board-certified. You know who these people are. You encounter them every day, and each encounter reinforces your impression that this is someone who should apply for board certification.

This is where we encounter the first hurdle. It's not enough for you to know who these well-qualified people are; we need you to tell us who they are.

We need you to fill out the http://www.aaees.org/_downloadcenter/members/NominationForm.pdf for Board Certification or http://www.aaees.org/_downloadcenter/members/NominationForm-Eminence.pdf for Board Certification through Eminence and send it to us so we can get the formal application process rolling. Whether that happens in April, September, December, or March doesn't really matter. What matters is that we begin the process. What matters is that we put these applicants on the path to certification.

So don't be reluctant to approach people on the topic of the Academy. And above all, don't be reluctant to get them started on the paper trail that leads to certification.

TAX Season and Planned Giving to the Academy

EESF Logo

Now that we are past the April tax season, we want to say thank you to those of you who made the Academy and the Environmental Engineering and Science Foundation a part of your charitable contributions. We appreciate your gift and will use the funds to support education in environmental engineering and science.

We also want to emphasize the fact that we are looking to enhance the effectiveness of our charitable giving programs. There are a lot of ways to do this, but the most important is to ask our audience to develop the habit of giving.

We have recently put in place some very important mechanisms that will help us build a program that consistently generates gifts while also consistently taking those gifts and converting them into meaningful action in support of the profession that we are all engaged in.

Take a look at the Foundation's website and see if there are ways that we can help you build a legacy of giving that supports our mission to preserve and protect the environment for the benefit of all.

2018 IWA Project Innovation Awards

The IWA Project Innovation Awards (PIA) aims to highlight innovative water and wastewater engineering projects around the world, thus bringing recognition to these projects as models of engineering excellence and spreading the knowledge of water and wastewater science and management. The awards span six categories: Applied Research, Planning, Design, Small Projects, Operations/Management, and Marketing and Communication. All 2017 and 2018 E3S award winners will be invited to submit their projects online via the IWA PIA website http://www.iwa-network.org/iwa-project-innovation-awards/. More details forthcoming.

2018 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook - Sign Up for Your Listing

The Academy invites you to sign up for a listing in the 2018 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook. We are releasing the Guidebook in both electronic and print format to make this year's edition easier to use and easier to distribute to individuals and organizations looking to connect with environmental specialists. We are expanding the content that each listing receives – enabling web links in the e-version and providing more room to post information on your specialties in both versions. We expect to print and distribute the new publication more widely than we have in the past, with a special focus on outreach at the trade events and conferences we attend during the year. We are also planning an expanded role for the Guidebook in making federal, state, and local agencies aware of the capabilities of our members in helping deal with current environmental engineering needs. Ask your organization to reserve its space by March 31, 2018. It's great exposure for a low cost.

For details, email JSOlmo@aaees.org. Click here to download the 2018 Reservation Form.

2017 Certification Audit Underway

Each person audited is being asked to provide the Recertification Committee with documentation substantiating at least 40 Professional Development Hours. The PDHs are acquired by continuing professional development activities during calendar years January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2016, to ensure compliance with the continuing professional development requirements for Active and Life Active specialty certification. Those who were audited within the past 10 years are exempt from the current cycle. If you have any questions, please let Joyce Dowen know at JDowen@aaees.org.

'Tis the Season

Yes, it is the holiday season with all the special moments it brings as we gather with friends and family to celebrate and reflect on the events of the past year.

It's also another type of season -- the beginning of tax season. While nowhere near as enjoyable as the holiday festivities, taking care of tax matters now can pay significant benefits for this tax year. The value of those benefits can be compounded into even larger amounts in the future with careful and informed planning.

Have you ever considered making the Academy an element of your personal tax strategy? Were you aware that the Academy established the Environmental Engineering and Science Foundation to serve as a mechanism by which Academy members can make tax deductible contributions to jointly support the practice of environmental engineering and science?

We can accept individual donations on a one-time basis. We also created what is known as a planned giving program. This mirrors the kinds of things that you see on public television where we can enable people to create and implement a structured giving program of a few dollars per month for the entire year. Please take a look at our description of the program on the Foundation's website at http://www.eesfoundation.org/plannedgiving/. Please consider making a donation.

Clearly, we can't tell you the whole story in this limited amount of space. But we can assure you that the program is designed to have significant benefits for our donors and for the Academy.

Feel free to give us a call to find out more. We would be delighted to hear from you.

Funding Available for Environmental Research and Development

The Department of Defense's (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development proposals. SERDP is DoD's environmental science and technology program, planned and executed in partnership with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, with participation by numerous other Federal and non-Federal organizations. The Program invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development.

Proposals responding to focused Statements of Need (SONs) in the following areas are requested:

  • Environmental Restoration - Research and technologies for the characterization, risk assessment, remediation, and management of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.
  • Munitions Response - Technologies for the detection, classification, and remediation of military munitions on U.S. lands and waters.
  • Resource Conservation and Resiliency - Supports the development of the science, technologies, and methods needed to manage DoD's installation infrastructure in a sustainable way.
  • Weapons Systems and Platforms - Research and technologies to reduce, control, and understand the sources of waste and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.

Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 SONs will be selected through a competitive process. Separate solicitations are available to Federal and non-Federal proposers. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website.

The Core SERDP Solicitation provides funding in varying amounts for multi-year projects. All Core Solicitation pre-proposals are due to SERDP January 4, 2018 by 2:00 p.m. ET.

SERDP also will be funding environmental research and development through the SERDP Exploratory Development (SEED) Solicitation. The SEED Solicitation is designed to provide a limited amount of funding (not to exceed $200,000) for projects up to approximately one year in duration to investigate innovative approaches that entail high technical risk or require supporting data to provide proof of concept. This year, SERDP is requesting SEED proposals for the Munitions Response program area. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website. All SEED proposals are due March 6, 2018 by 2:00 p.m. ET.
