Community Outreach

This team is focused on outbound communication with citizens across all aspects of the island via the Internet, social media, events, training, and more. Operating from a place of love—not fear—this team moves citizens through the stages of awareness towards action.

The team is led by Loren Bast (tech startup and media veteran from The Seattle Times) with Allen Elliott (Information Technology, BIEMR), Stephanie Bell (social media guru), and Susannah Arntson (event organizer, graphic design).
