Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

Core to our Outreach and Communications committee was the development of initiatives and tools to facilitate outreach to the community. With such a large number of participants (100+ organizational partners and close to 300 members on our listserv), we struggle with getting information out to everyone for promotion of events and meetings, as well as resources available in our community. During this year, the following tools have been created:

1) Website: www.pcc.edu/about/sustainability/regional-center-expertise/

2) Facebook: www.facebook.com/RCE.GreaterPortland

3) Twitter: @GPSENews

4) Listservs: www.lists.pdx.edu/lists/listinfo/un-rce-esd

5) Monthly Newsletter sent to listservs, via pdx.edu account and via MailChimp (see sample below)
