Communications is charged with keeping the membership informed of CREW activities and events, member news, and benefits primarily on the local level, and on the national level as appropriate. This is accomplished through weekly eblasts to members and sponsors, and through bimonthly updating of the website. Chair drafts monthly reports to the board, copy-edits materials generated by other committees, supplies “cut-and-paste” information from Programs and other sources to the director and the administrator for weekly eblasts, collects and transmits changes to the website administrator, and serves as liaison between PR firm and CREW for media coverage and social media. Committee members draft new-member profiles, and take photographs at events and meetings. The committee consists of the director, a chair and 3 to 5 active members.
Timeline: Following January organizational meetings, members’ activities are ongoing for 12 months.
Time commitment: One hour a week; more at year-end when website requires substantial updates.
