Communications

The BSA Communications Team assists with publicity for BSA events using our website, social media including FacebookLinkedIn, and Twitter @UCBerkeleyStaff, as well as our BSA mailing list . Our Team collects and distributes information about events and news of interest to the UCB staff and maintains the weekly "BSA Announcements" newsletter and archive. Additionally,  we contribute to the curation and maintenance of BSA's historical documents in our digital collections and archives at the Bancroft Library. 

Team members meet monthly in person or virtually and assist with communications and publicity between meetings as needed. Volunteers welcome for a variety of roles including
  • posting content and/or analyzing usage for BSA's social media accounts; 
  • creating content for our various commnication channels; and 
  • photographing and reporting on BSA and campus events for staff. 

Participation:

Volunteering for this committee you can gain experience with a variety of current communications and publicity tools, and gain campuswide exposure as you grow your skills.  

The activities and priorities of this committee are determined by the committee chair in consultation with and approval by the BSA Chair/GC.  The extent of our activities primarily depends on the availability of volunteers to undertake and see projects through. The more people we have the more we can do.

While we can provide some training and mutual assistance between committee members, our meetings are generally used for planning or hands-on work toward our goals. We recommend exploring the many campus resources available to you while learning web and communications techniques and technologies. There are a variety of online classes (Lynda.com) books and other resources available through the "UC Learning Center" or Campus Libraries as well as the Berkeley Communications Conference website.
