Communications Committee

  • Newsletter
  • Web site
  • Social media
  • Natural Awakenings
  • Outreach

If we build it — will they come? Only if they know about it.

For many years the Center has published a regular newsletter. The old paper newsletter was published and maiiled every other month until we went “paperless”. The email newsletter format allows us to publish a newsletter every month as well as “This Week at the Center”. Along with the effective addition of our monthly appearance in “Natural Awakenings” we continue to attract new people to many events.

Social media when properly used can reach a large interested base of people who have never been here or who come infrequently. It is a great way to connect with others and keep them informed of programs and activities that may interest them. If you have skill in social media, and are willing to commit to coordinating those efforts, please contact us. We have a Facebook group as well as a Facebook page. There is a photo gallery on the website that could use some loving attention.

We want to start an outreach to like minded people in middle and east Tennessee, western North Carolina and other appropriate areas. Coordination of these efforts will require a level of time and energy committment preferably from a small group of people.
