Communications Committee

The Communications Committee is a consolidation of the various Newtown Meeting communications functions: Press Relations, Web Clerk, Newsletter Committee, Display Media (e.g. bulletin boards), Announcers, and Digital/Social Media. By having these functions together under one umbrella we are able to streamline communications processes and create systems for curating and updating information in a timely and efficient manner. These systems enable Newtown Meeting members and attenders to access the information they need in the way that works best for them.
