Communication Projects Group/Membership

ComProj | Home · Membership · Projects · Calendar · Meetings

ComProj is an open group that is currently interested in recruiting new members. If you are interested in how the Foundation communicates, are willing to become involved in the project and perhaps have some special communication-related skills, we'd love to hear from you. Our requirements are simply that you are interested in communications, and are willing to put a decent amount of time into your project(s). We need commitment from members to get work done. To join, please do the following:

  • Add yourself to the table below
  • Join the mailing list
  • Send a note to the mailing list introducing yourself.

It is asked that all involved note that all members of ComProj are equal in standing, and that those in co-ordinator or project management positions are simply showing a different skill, in the same way graphics artists and writers are. They are separated in this table for ease of use when finding contact information.

Examples of Areas of Interest:

  • Copy Editor - writing text for pieces
  • Researcher (facts, info, pics, for brochures, video, etc)
  • Graphic Design - creating brochures, fliers,
  • Film Production
  • Translating check (making sure a translated brochure, etc, reads well in your language)
  • Project Management - providing organizational support for projects
  • Website Design - creating with graphic elements on webpages
  • General Assistance
  • Press - helping with press list and other press specific tasks
