|Spotlight: Communications Committee|
The Communications Committee is responsible for supporting chapter communications and oversees development and maintenance of the website, quarterly chapter newsletter, social media, public relations, and related activities. The co-chairs are members of the Board of Directors. Responsibilities include:
• Website: Oversee the development and updates/revisions to the chapter website.
• Newsletter: Establish guidelines for acceptable content, creation of original content, acquisition and review of content (text and photographs) from members and external sources, editing, and creative/layout/design recommendations.
• Social Media: Establish and maintain the chapter’s visibility on social media platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn).
• Public Relations: Support public relations activities and internal/external communication (in coordination with the Executive Committee) on behalf of the chapter.
The Communications Committee recently realigned each tri-chair’s responsibilities to better serve our membership:
Ann Tuason is responsible for keeping the chapter website (http://ahenj.achechapter.org/) up to date. Harshal Shah develops our email communications and adds all of our events to EventBrite to streamline the online registration process. Lastly, the chapter’s social media channels are now handled by Michael Pizzano. Be sure to follow our pages: Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ACHENJ/), LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3051811) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/ACHENJ) to view photos from events and read chapter news.
Additionally, the committee is developing a plan to better promote events and communicate news. If you have any input you’d like to share about this process, please contact Jodi McCaffrey, secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org
