Communication Chair’s Report

03 Nov 2014 10:42 AM | CAGP (Administrator)

2013-2014 has been a very eventful year for the communications portfolio. It has been a time of transition as Secretariat Central has taken over from TOCORP. This past year I have chaired the committee with input from Mark Rapoport, Holly Dornan and Secretariat Central. Lara Hazelton, former communications chair for the CAGP, has agreed to join us this coming year. We have continued to provide regional updates on a quarterly basis, providing our members with important information about what is going on in different areas of the country. We have reformatted the e-newsletter to make it more e-friendly and also have added ongoing updates in areas such as the scientific meeting, national review course, royal college certification and research. We have a new logo that reflects our new vision but also has sufficient similarity to the old logo to provide some continuity. With the assistance of Timothy Lau we have struck an e-resources task force and are in the process of revamping our website, updating links to important topic areas such as depression and dementia. We are also considering revamping the member’s only section of the website. We hope to have changes to the website finalized by next year. Through the involvement of Holly Dornan and Marla Davidson we have enhanced our links with trainees and also explored how we can use social media more effectively to connect with members. Finally, as I am stepping down from the board, we are in the process of clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of the communications chair and will be selecting a successor to me once the new board is formed. I have volunteered to stay on in my role during the transition period. Looking ahead, my hope is that we can expand the membership of our group and start focusing on using the communications portfolio as a means of enhancing clinical and research collaborations.
