There are several communities of interest for campus staff involved in the communications area. They are places to share ideas, timely information and best practices with colleagues who have similar responsibilities in their schools, colleges, departments and programs.
Campus Communicators is an informal group of UW–Madison professionals who convey information to students, alumni, faculty/staff, media and other audiences. It meets periodically during the school year. An email discussion list exists for sharing announcements about upcoming meetings and to facilitate discussion among members of the group. To sign up for the email list, send a request to email@example.com.
The UW AV Club is the unofficial collaborative group for UW–Madison’s video and multimedia community. It passes along tech tips, shares information and answers questions.
