    The World Outside: What they Say About Why your Work Matters,
    With Eric Eckl, Water Words That Work LLC

    Take a journey through conservation insights from social scientists and market researchers.  The findings are sometimes heartening, sometimes frustrating – but always fascinating.

    We will explore what polls, surveys, focus groups and other research tools teach us – and how they mislead us – about the public’s attitudes towards you and your work.

    Eric Eckl loves campaigns and would run for office if he could give the job to somebody else after winning.  Instead, he helps conservation and environmental organizations with pollution prevention, fundraising, and issue advocacy campaigns.  He founded Water Words That Work LLC as a marketing and public relations firm for nature protection and pollution control organizations.  Before launching Water Words That Work, Eric managed fundraising, media relations, and publishing activities for many conservation organizations.

    Registration
    All registrations will be submitted online and registrants have the option of paying by credit card, Paypal or by check.  If you need assistance, please contact us at 717.230.8560. Regular registration begins on March 15 and late fees will be applied to registrations submitted on or after April 15.
