Public Information & Outreach Committee
An increasing number of stakeholders from across the public and private sectors are using Envision to plan, design, and deliver more sustainable infrastructure, set standards and establish policies for sustainable infrastructure, and guide procurement. The purpose of the Public Information & Outreach Committee is to inform ISI staff of market and implementation-related matters affecting the use of Envision®. The committee shall provide expert feedback and insight on how the Envision system and related tools, resources, and programs affect the user experience and market uptake of Envision, towards the goal of securing Envision’s leadership in sustainable infrastructure and providing effective and satisfying user engagement.
The Public Information & Outreach Committee shall represent as many infrastructure sectors (e.g., water, transportation, energy, waste) and geographical areas (e.g., states, provinces, territories) as possible. Committee members must be members of ISI. Committee members should also be frequent users of Envision, as well as have expertise in Envision implementation, marketing strategies, and government procurement/tendering processes.
Training and Credentialing Committee
In 2018, ISI launched a credential maintenance program with the intention of strengthening the ENV SP credential. The training and credentialing committee will support credential programming in two ways: first, by advocating for and enhancing ENV SP Training (the online course and the in-person workshop); second, by supporting continuing education through development and review of new courses. The committee will identify topical education needs and may propose new curriculum, strategies, or platforms.
