Ewald Consulting will provide association management services for the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA), an organization dedicated to improving problems in the environment.

Founded in 1968, EDRA is an international, interdisciplinary organization working to disseminate environmental design research, which improves the understanding of the inter-relationships of people with their surroundings, ultimately moving towards the creation of environments more responsive to human needs. EDRA has been a groundbreaking pioneer in fields such as: environment and behavior studies, evidence-based design, facility evaluation methods, sustainability, active living community planning and digital technologies. With over 500 members on six continents and with more than 40 years of research-based innovations, EDRA is the premier environmental design research organization in the world.

Ewald Consulting will take the lead on running EDRA’s conference EDRA48Madison taking place in May of 2017 in Madison, WI, and will mark the association’s 48th annual conference. Ewald will also assist with the development of major publications developed by EDRA, including the EDRA Connections newsletter and the EDRA by Design e-newsletter. Ewald will also work with EDRA to continue development of their graduate student workshop, Knowledge Networks, and student research grant projects.

“I am thrilled about this partnership between the Environmental Research Design Association and Ewald Consulting,” said David Ewald, president and CEO of Ewald Consulting. “EDRA has been a cutting edge association for many years, and will be a great fit for our company and staff.”

Kris Haskin will lead Ewald Consulting’s efforts in association management as the account executive. Kris can be reached at
