2020-21 Communications Committee Report
Caitlin Walton, Chair & Ross Fulton, Vice Chair
The Mecklenburg County Bar Communications Committee met on a monthly basis in 2020-21. The meetings focused on planning content for each edition of the Mecklenburg Bar News, weekly Bar Blasts, MeckBar.org and various social media outlets.
During the 2020-21 fiscal year, the Communications Committee met exclusively via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic and did not miss any deadlines for the Mecklenburg Bar News.
The committee also continued to monitor and expand the MCB's social media platforms. LinkedIn continues to be the most active platform for the MCB and has now gained more than 2,000 followers. Social media continues to be a significant tool to interact and inform MCB membership and the community.
The committee will continue to work with recommendations from the MCB Board of Directors and ADCO on updating the MCB's branding during 2021-22.
