The EMC is Broome County government's citizens’ advisory board on local environment matters. Joyce Smith and her husband, Paul, played key roles in establishing and maintaining the work of the EMC and made many significant contributions to the organization over the years. Joyce helped to establish and plan the EMC’s first Photo Show. The Show was renamed in her honor and a memorial fund was established in her name commemorating her dedication to the EMC and her appreciation for Broome County's environment.
