  • Developing and maintaining relationships with key media contacts
  • Assisting with the development of CAN's Communications Strategy (which also encompasses website, publications, etc)

Additional areas covered by this group include

  • a working place for general planning and discussion relating to CAN's Chainlinks magazine and/or CAN's electronic newsletter - e.CAN . Note there is a separate (closed) website used for Chainlinks production
  • mangement of the content of CAN's website, as opposed to the nuts and bolts of keeping the site working, i.e functional, updated and secure,  which is handled by the IT support portfolio
