The purpose of the Communications Committee is:

  • To coordinate the planning, development, implementation and maintenance of NASIG electronic communication resources.
  • To encourage and enable the use of electronic communications throughout the organization -- as a tool for conducting organizational business, as a means of informing the membership about the activities of the organization and as a forum for member communication.
  • To educate and inform the membership in regard to the use and potential of electronic communications media in general, and NASIG website, listservs, and social media forums in particular.
  • To facilitate professional communication within and beyond the membership through SERIALST.
To achieve these goals, members of the committee maintain electronic lists for the entire organization and for individual committees, coordinate mounting and maintaining information on the NASIG web site and social media profiles, and consider options for implementing new electronic services. The NASIG Marketing & Social Media Coordinator is a member of this committee, and is responsible for all external publicity of NASIG events.

The committee works with the Database & Directory Committee to coordinate membership and committee information and with various NASIG committees to assist with their web publishing needs.

If you have any questions you may email the Communications Committee.
