Local Key Communicator

1-2 hours per month
Year Round Position
Youth, Youth+, Adult

A “local key communicator” is any youth or adult Arrowman who is in a position within their lodge or section whose primary function is to communicate information to members in their lodge/section. This may be a single officer or adviser positions such as a communications vice chief or section secretary or it may be a member of a committee such as a communications or promotions committee.

One of the major initiatives of the National Communications Committee (NCC) is to support lodges and sections in meeting their communication needs. This is achieved with the Local Support arm of the NCC.

Key communicators should be Arrowmen who are empowered to improve communication within their tier of the organization. Local key communicators will have a direct line of communication with the Local Support team and other key communicators from around the country to better provide feedback on the communication needs at the local level. Key communicators will meet virtually a few times a year to learn share, and collaborate on communication best practices and resources.
