WFoL Communications Team Seeking New Members
Our team works to communicate our mission, keep members informed, work with program chairs, and find new and effective ways to engage the community especially as we have had to adjust to restrictions and challenges presented by Covid19.
Communications Chair Ameryn Briggs hosts weekly team meetings via Zoom at 9 am on Wednesdays. Together with team members Cassie Carter and Lisa Nalbone they check in on upcoming communications needs and deadlines, weekly newsletter, website updates, assign tasks, and plan for future events in coordination with other board members and committee chairs.
In brainstorming new ways to reach people and serve the mission from afar, we’ve updated the website and are planning a new series of articles about reading, writing, and ways for people to continue to be involved. We’d also like to incorporate more video and bilingual materials.
