The purpose of the Communicators Forum is to promote excellence
in communications and enhance cooperation among communications professionals
working at the University. The Forum does this by:
The Forum is a nonprofit, volunteer organization with many opportunities to get involved. Because learning and practicing new skills can be challenging, we support volunteers through leadership training and coaching. Members increase their professional skills and their knowledge of the University, providing value back to their units.
The Forum is led by a board of directors including committee chairs and six elected positions — chair, chair-elect, chair emeritus, recorder, treasurer, and one at-large director.
In 1986, a small group of communicators started meeting to discuss their jobs and common interests. They talked about the impact communicators have at the University. They took a hard look at opportunities for professional development and decided they needed more. They created the Communicators Forum and drafted the Forum bylaws.
As a Forum member, you’ll find opportunities for professional growth, networking, and career development. Three membership options are available.
University members are also eligible to chair committees and serve on the board of directors.
