The Communications Committee manages NYCCAL’s website, listserv, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr accounts. Committee members help facilitate communication with members, potential members, allies and press. The communication committee members regularly solicit content updates from the other committees and from members to keep the website, Facebook and twitter accounts up-to-date. (This committee is not solely responsible for creating content – that is a shared responsibility of all active NYCCAL members.) The committee handles the creation of other outreach materials such as postcards and outreach letters & is responsible for archiving NYCCAL materials as well.

The NYCCAL Advocacy Committee consists of volunteer members interested in advancing the policy priorities of the coalition. Working in partnership with the Policy Committee, the Advocacy Committee is responsible for developing and implementing an advocacy strategy benefiting the broader membership. Activities are typically focused on State and City level Adult Literacy related funding and policy and include: meeting with public officials and administrators, authoring and/or signing onto advocacy documents, and organizing larger scale events such as rallies. The Advocacy Committee also furthers broader policy priorities, in partnership with the Provider Concerns Committee, as they arise. The Advocacy Committee meets weekly via conference call and new participants are always welcome.
