Communications Chair – Volunteer
As the Coastal Women’s Forum (CWF) Communication Chair, my responsibilities were to keep the organization current, visible and accessible. I accomplished this by incorporating social media as a communications tool, updating the website and establishing protocols for media and group communication.
Utilized social media and managed the website to bring broader public awareness of the networking group and to attract new and younger members to the 25 year old organization.
Managed the CWF social networking sites by posting news, upcoming events, photos and recaps from current events, useful links for the membership, and shared pertinent posts made by our members to create conversations and more traffic on the sites.
Researched and presented alternative venues to the existing website, resulting in an updated website that includes many new useful features, streamlined various processes and made the group more efficient.
Administered the website by updating the members’ information, posting current events, and collaborating with other board members to ensure our member directory, event invitations, and event calendar were organized and comprehensive.
Trained the board members to use the new website to complete their selected web tasks.
Established the organization’s corporate identity by creating a consistent graphic image and then developed and implemented guidelines for its use.
Designed and produced marketing material, advertisements and forms providing the Coastal Women's Forum with a fresh and professional image.
Edited copy and photos, produced design and layout, coordinated production, implemented an editorial schedule and created submission guidelines for the monthly e-newsletter.
Coordinated with the Publicity Chair to ensure that monthly meetings were listed in local newspapers and that press releases were delivered to the public media within established deadlines.
Wrote and produced occasional press releases.
