Report of the Communications Committee

September 2009

Bob Campbell Item 11(k)

The Committee met in Ottawa at the National Office of UTE on July 27 to July 29. In attendance Brother’s Barry Melanson, Sabri Khayat, Sister Susan Duncan and the Chair Brother Bob Campbell.

The Committee prepared the September’s newsletter for publication. 

The Committee had a general discussion on the marketing of the questionnaire, what worked and what did not.  The questionnaire’s response was disappointing, but still better than average.

The Committee would like to remind the Chairs of the UTE Standing Committees that they should send copies of their minutes to Susan Duncan to be put on the web.  The Committee would also request that the Committee Chairs provide a membership focused summary of the actions of their Committee so that it may be included in future newsletters.

The Committee worked on the Policy and Procedures Manual and the Help Manual.  The Committee recommends the creation of a document which would outline the links between documents. The Committee will email the Help Manual and the Policy and Procedures Manual to the Locals in September. 

The Committee will revise the Local New Members PowerPoint Presentation and forward it to the locals on its completion.

Respectfully submitted,

Bob Campbell
Chair of the Committee
