The Delegate Toolkit

The delegate toolkit was designed by the Marketing Committee to serve as a guide to the new delegate.

EDEN's Leadership

While EDEN is a grassroots network, it does have a national leadership made up of four elected officers, the chairs of each of the network standing committees, and representatives of the 1890 institutions, Sea Grant institutions, federal agencies including USDA, and the network's staff.

Promote EDEN

As a grassroots organization, it falls to the delegates to spread the word of the network, and promote the combined work of the organization. This effort is led by the Marketing Committee which is developed a number of tools to help delegates take the work of EDEN beyond the network.
