Community Advisory Board


Community Member Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board was created by the Education Writers Association Board of Directors to help steer the organization’s programs and services for nonjournalist members. The nine-member board is made up of communications professionals with wide-ranging backgrounds, including education reporting and editing.

The board provides input and feedback to the EWA staff and Board of Directors on future direction for membership services. Members also play a large role in shaping sessions tailored for Supporting Community Members at the annual EWA National Seminar.
