Jeanne DuarteTracy Sims
As a current board member for the past 3 years, I believe I can continue to add benefit as a member of Ecopliant Board of Directors in a number of ways. First, having served as a Board Member for past years, I have been involved with the rebranding of CISEC and the creation of the CDSEC program. I am familiar with the needs of Ecopliant and have worked diligently with the Board to bring outstanding and pertinent certification and training opportunities to our registrants.I have been employed with the City of Sherwood, Arkansas as the Emergency Management/Environmental Compliance Specialist for the past 17 years. I hold the following professional credentials: (CEA) Certified Environmental Auditor, (CNRP) Certified Natural Resources Professional, (CFM) Certified Floodplain Manager, (CISEC) Certified Inspector of Sediment and Erosion Control, (CDSEC), Certified Designer of Sediment and Erosion Control, and (FPA) Floodplain Administrator. I have been a CISEC/Ecopliant Board Member since June 2021.
I enjoy working with other municipalities, organizations, and private firms to build relationships in the field of erosion control, best management practices, and training opportunities available though membership in the CISEC/Ecopliant Organization.
I would like to continue working with the Board of Directors to build and organization that every member can be proud of. In addition, I want the CISEC/Ecopliant name to be well known in every city.
