Committee focus

The Communications Committee is instrumental in ensuring member wants and needs are addressed in SPAAR communications, which also provide insight into industry trends, market reports and member involvement. The Communications Committee provides creative input in special communications projects throughout the year.

Committee involvement

In addition, the committee and provides creative input into various communications projects and initiatives.

SPAAR Toastmasters

The Communications Committee in 2019 started the first-ever SPAAR Toastmasters for members to gain confidence in presentation skills, meeting efficiency and practice opportunities to hone speaking skills. With meetings twice a month, SPAAR Toastmasters is a great way to grow professionally within the industry. Learn more about Toastmasters, International, here.

Member Surveys and Focus Groups

Every other year SPAAR’s Communications Committee has the fun task of reaching out to members to hear what’s working and what could be improved. Through feedback from a member survey as well as a series of focus groups, your input helps shape the direction of SPAAR’s focus year after year in order to provide the best service, programs, opportunities and resources possible.
