In an effort to increase member engagement, SPA has created an opportunity to join a new committee, Content Advisory Committee. This committee will assist with identifying and producing content for the SPA Blog and SPA's social media, as well as oversee the selection process for the Editor of the Exchange Newsletter. It will be comprised of up to 9 individuals that have a diverse background in the field. Members on the Content Advisory Committee are ineligible to be the editor while in service.
The SPA Blog will be an area that will touch on a variety of topics that are relevant to the industry, but these blogs will be on the shorter side maxing out at 2000 words. They will be able to give a high-level overview of the topic. We will start with a call for blog posts and encourage those not selected for the Exchange Newsletter to consider turning their article into a blog post touching on the most important key points. The Content Advisory Committee will also be in charge of editing these blog posts if necessary.
The committee will be in charge of finding one article every two weeks that is of relevant to the field and may be of importance/benefit to the SPA membership.
The editor(s) will be selected by the Content Advisory Committee after we open a call for applications. The editor(s) will serve a minimum of one issue and will be in charge ofselecting the writers, editing articles, and the overall issue format. SPA Staff would assist in the production side of things, while the editor(s) will serve as the content expert.
While hard to estimate, on average, we expect no more than 3-5 hours of meetings and outside work per month. Having said that, the goals the committee sets for itself may necessitate a larger time commitment. All meetings will be virtual and will occur through Zoom.
