Patrick Riccards, who blogs at Eduflack, is rounding up communicators in education to participate in his new project, Educommunicators, an online community for marketing communications professionals in the education sector.
To date, Riccards says, “there has been no strong voice for the many marketing, PR, public affairs, creative, and general communications professionals that serve the education sector. Traditional PR societies have ignored education as an industry sector. And communications has been but a small part of the official education association infrastructure.”
Educommunicators aims to “give voice to education communications professionals, their profession, and their passions.” Riccards welcomes communicators working in all sectors of the education community–people with “unique perspectives who represent the full spectrum of the education sector.”
Sounds good to me. I’m on board.
