New staff and changes at the GLC
2016 is off to an exciting start at the GLC. We are completing work on an updated five-year strategic plan to guide our work from 2016 through 2020. We are also growing, with three new strategic hires in the past year and more to come in 2016.
Steve Cole, our Chief Information Officer, is leading our information management and delivery services - this includes leadership of our transformative Blue Accounting initiative, which will bring together the right people to set region-wide goals, determine how best to track progress against those goals, and deliver the right information to help leaders better set priorities and allocate resources in the Great Lakes region.
As communications manager, Beth Wanamaker is supporting individual projects, advocacy and outreach, and our overall regional mission and mandate. Beth is also the voice behind all of our social media accounts – say hi on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram!
Our new program manager Nicole Zacharda coordinates our nonpoint source pollutant reduction project portfolio, including our exciting new ErieStat project — an information platform that will track progress toward meeting the shared goal of a 40% reduction in phosphorus loads to the Western Lake Erie Basin.
