The Information and Communications Committee serves as stewards for the integrity, growth, and dissemination of the association’s collective body of knowledge. The scope of this stewardship includes the APPA website, published materials, electronically disseminated material, social media, curated materials, surveys and data, videos, informatics tools, the Body of Knowledge (BOK), professional whitepapers, and both basic research (CFaR) and applied research papers. In advancing the Strategic Plan’s vision of Continuous Learning, the committee monitors and evaluates the ease and effectiveness of information storage and retrieval for members pursuing individual, on-demand, and self-paced learning and discovery.
The committee assists the Executive Vice President in leveraging social media platforms and strategies for advancing the Strategic Plan’s goal of cultivating community and enhancing networking. The Vice President advises the Executive Vice President and APPA Leadership concerning the ongoing efforts for strategic communications within and external to the association.
