Communication Committee

The main goal of the Communication Committee is to enhance communications to all NC AWWA-WEA members and non-members through the website and NC Currents quarterly magazine. Activities organized by the Communication Committee include NC Currents magazine, email newsletters, photo contest, press releases, and social media.


The committee's establishment of themes, theme descriptions, and theme leaders for each quarterly issue of NC Currents magazine is key to the overall consistency and success of the publication. The Editorial Subcommittee and its associated members are responsible for developing the review outline and schedule for each publication, providing editorial review following the established Style Guide in order to assure high quality material, coordinating with staff members in working with the NC Currents magazine publisher, and completing other related tasks.


Each NC Currents magazine issue has assigned Theme Leaders that are responsible for developing the Theme Description, soliciting authors to write articles and features that follow the Theme Description, coordinating with the committee liaison in the selection of the Plant Spotlight, and recommending NC AWWA-WEA members for the Member Portraits section of the magazine.

The Electronic Communication/Website Subcommittee and its associated staff are responsible for coordinating the employment advertisements and other related electronic policies, reviewing and recommending changes to the NC AWWA-WEA website, coordinating with staff members in the continuous enhancement of the website, and for the completion of other related tasks.

Meeting Schedule

The Communication Committee traditionally meets in-person three times per year in February, July, and November at the Annual Conference. A conference call option is provided for in-person meetings when it is possible. Additional conference call meetings take place throughout the year typically corresponding about a month before each NC Currents submission deadline.
