CHAMPION SUPPORTER: recognition of eVision Media for design and enhancement of website to showcase success stories and celebrate champions who lead by example (October 2021)

Note to Reader:

The Partnership for Water Sustainability has a decade-long working relationship with eVision Media. Collaboration-based, this relationship has involved two re-builds of the website – in 2012 and then again in 2017.

Vision for Website

“The Partnership for Water Sustainability values everything that Susan Friesen and her staff have done for the past decade to help us ensure the success of the website. It is a powerhouse website with a great look-and-feel. Susan’s support of the Partnership over many years means a lot to us,” stated Kim Stephens, Executive Director, when he presented the framed Champion Supporter certificate of recognition.”

“The vision for the website is that it will inform and educate land use, infrastructure servicing, and asset management practitioners by providing easy access to information, tools and resources. Many in this province do know in principle what they ought to do. However, there is still a gap between UNDERSTANDING and IMPLEMENTATION. This results in a capacity-building challenge. Hence, the spotlight is on how to ‘bridge the gap’ between talk and action. That is mission possible,” continued Mike Tanner, Chair, website.

“The level of service and the rapid response when there is a website glitch to be fixed is amazing. Whether on a week day or during the weekend, and regardless of time of the day, all I need do is send an email to eVision staff and functionality will be immediately restored to normal,” concluded Kim Stephens.

Flashback to 2017

“We truly appreciate the recognition. Working with the Partnership Executive is always a pleasure. In 2017, for example, we were excited to have the opportunity to give their tired old site a fresh, new look with enhanced features,” stated Susan Friesen, Web Specialist  and Social Media Advisor with eVision Media.

“Knowing the user-base was wanting to find information easily, we redesigned the home page with not only a more contemporary look and feel but also to facilitate it being a portal to all of the different content-rich sections of the site.

“Now site users can enjoy a faster, easier and mobile-friendly experience to conduct their research and become more informed with the valuable resources the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC provides.”
