INMM is seeking applicants for the position of Communications Committee chair.
The Communications Committee is responsible for overseeing institutional communications between INMM leadership, its membership, and external communities, including the general public. In particular, the Committee produces the INMM Communicator blog, reviews the content and functionality of the INMM website, provides industry-specific content for our social media feeds, and explores the development of new communication media. The Chair of the Communications Committee represents the Committee before the INMM Executive Committee (EC), initiates Committee business and sets its agenda, organizes the Committee, appoints the subcommittee chairs, provides leadership, and coordinates with other Committee Chairs and members of the EC on projects with mutual relevance. The Chair serves and is appointed by the EC. Communications is a Standing Committee within the scope of the INMM Management Oversight chair.
The Chair provides a written summary report of status and recent activities to the EC three times per year; the July report is typically also included in the INMM report to the membership. The Chair is expected to attend the scheduled meetings of the EC in March, July, and November of each year. The Chair works closely with INMM Headquarters and serves in a critical advisory capacity. The Committee works closely with other units of INMM, including its Chapters and Technical Divisions. In addition to these responsibilities, the Chair of the Communications Committee oversees committee and staff work related to elements of INMM’s Strategic Plan. The Committee scope does not include the Journal of Nuclear Materials Management (JNMM), which is the responsibility of a wholly separate standing committee.
Currently, the Committee is organized into three subcommittees:
Public Relations and Outreach: looks for opportunities and deals with issues involving INMM communications beyond its membership - to nuclear materials management professionals, nonprofit and government entities, as well as the general public.
Website: reviews the content and functionality of the INMM website to ensure its accuracy, relevance, usability, and timeliness. Reviews content of new and existing information and works with headquarters staff to identify the best website placement for information.
Social Media and Apps: provides domain-relevant content and guidance on the use of electronic communication tools by the Institute. Leads a team that produces, reviews, and publishes social media announcements and other postings.
Interested candidates should submit their resumes, an expression of interest, and their vision for the position to INMM Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2019.
