Electronic Communications Committee

Designs, maintains and updates the SCA website, and SCA social media sites, to facilitate communication among SCA members and others.

General Description

The Electronic Communications Committee (ECC) is a standing committee that exists to facilitate and maintain various means of electronic communication between SCA leadership and members, as well as among SCA members. Such means of communication are focused around but not limited to SCA's web site, and could include e-mail blasts, interactive platforms such as social media sites and electronic tools for reaching out (surveying, educating, etc.) the membership. The ECC works closely with the SCA Board, all SCA committees, task forces and groups that wish to communicate to a broad swatch of SCA's membership. Composition of the committee and terms of office are defined in Handbook section 3-1 and governed by the Bylaws.

Website Blog Posting Policy

Ability to post to the blog is restricted to SCA Board Members and SCA Committee Chairs. This may be expanded at a later time to allow for SCA Members to post. Any non-members wishing to post content to the blog would need to contact ECC and provide the content to be posted on their behalf. Regarding the content, the same policies would apply to posting any content on the homepage in that it would need to be directly relevant to SCA and/or refer to a SCA publication. Committee Chairs are encouraged to promote committee activity on the SCA Homepage, especially Publications, which should share newsletter content.
