Communications and Publications Working Group

Group Chairs: Carol Kussmann (kussmann at umn dot edu) and Dan Noonan (noonan dot 37 at osu dot edu)

The Communications and Publication Working Group works with the Leadership team to schedule the publication activities of the Interest and Working groups, update the NDSA website, post social media and blog posts, and finalize NDSA publications and make them available. We also work on creating guideance documents for Leadership and Interest and Working group co-chairs and members. To join this Working Group, please contact the coordinators.

The Communications and Publications Working Group generally meets monthly but also meets as needed based on the activities of the other groups.
