2014 brings enhancements to the Council’s action alert system

For over a decade, the Iowa Environmental Council has offered Iowans a free, easy-to-use method for contacting elected officials and decision-makers about important environmental issues. In 2014, the Council will be transitioning to a new action alert service, allowing us to provide you a better experience.

When important public comment opportunities or legislative debates take place, the Council sends an e-mail to our supporters with background information and a suggested message to send to decision-makers. By using the service, you can personalize your unique message and send it within minutes, adding your voice of support for clean water, clean energy and a healthy Iowa environment.

During 2014, these enhancements will be made available to all our supporters:

  • The user interface for sending your message will be completely re-designed to be much easier to use. Alerts to federal and state officials will work the same way and take less time to submit.
  • After you have taken action, asking your friends to take action through Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other services will be easier than ever, bringing you new opportunities to spread the word about important environmental issues.
  • You can use the service to identify your elected officials, their legislative committee assignments, and find their contact information.

You can explore a preview of the new action alert interface right now by visiting iaenvironment.org/actnow.php. To receive the Council’s action alerts by e-mail, sign up at iaenvironment.org/signup.php.
