International Erosion Control Association launches podcast series

The International Erosion Control Association (IECA) has launched its first podcast series titled, Clearing the Waters. A podcast is a recording that is saved in a MP3 format and allows the listener the choice of uploading it to any MP3 device or listening to it from a desktop or laptop. The purpose of the podcast series is to provide listeners with an inside look at IECA’s annual conference and expo, Environmental Connection 2012 (EC12). The 2012 conference will be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Las Vegas from February 26-29, 2012.

“IECA is constantly working to improve the methods of communication we use to connect with our members and conference attendees,” said Russ Adsit, FASLA, IECA’s Executive Director. “The podcast series, Clearing the Waters, is a great way for industry professionals to get a behind-the-scenes look at our annual conference, Environmental Connection 2012. The casts will cover topics ranging from education to business opportunities for attendees to the nuts and bolts of conference planning. We hope that members and attendees find the podcasts an entertaining way to gain insights into the world’s largest soil and water event.”

IECA plans to release a podcast each week leading up to the conference. Listeners can expect to hear from a wide array of guests including conference speakers and presenters, IECA committee members, association staff and Board of Directors. Guests will bring a sneak peak and a fresh perspective to the education, expo hall and activities that will be offered at the conference.
