The ELECTRONIC SERVICES ADVISORY BOARD provides oversight and coordination for electronic membership services, including those pertaining to AFS communications, publications, meetings, unit functions, and the content and structure of the AFS website.

AFS Communications Committee

Julie Defilippi Simpson

The COMMUNICATION COMMITTEE functions as an internal advisory group to facilitate development and implementation of consistent strategies, tools, and practices that guide the conduct of communication from the Society, units (chapters, sections, and divisions), and subunits. The focus of the committee will be the development and maintenance of the AFS Communications Strategic Plan and provision of assessment and recommendations on communication approaches. Helping protect the integrity of the Society’s image or brand will be an outcome of this process. Separate from the committee and headquarters staff, the AFS Science Communication Section will manage science communication expertise as a service to individual members or member groups.
