WSSCC’s Advocacy and Communications Department is at full capacity with the addition of two new staff members, Astrid Salcedo and Eileen Palmer. Ms Salcedo joined the organization 1 June and serves in the newly created position of Member Services Officer. Fluent in English, French, and Spanish, Ms Salcedo comes to WSSCC from the European Consumers Organisation, an NGO that focused on consumer rights issues. At WSSCC, she will lead the implementation of the new membership strategy and serve as the first point of contact at the Secretariat for members.

Ms Palmer is the department’s new Team Assistant and will support her advocacy, communications and membership colleagues in their respective work areas. She joined WSSCC 15 June after having worked previously at the National Research Council and The Land Conservancy of British Columbia, both Canadian-based organizations. She has more than ten years of experience in mentoring, project management, and human resources in environmental and cultural heritage organizations.

“Astrid and Eileen bring additional competence, professionalism, and enthusiasm to the department, and we look forward to having them on our team,” said Amanda Marlin, Programme Manager for Advocacy and Communications.
