Hi Hilary. I believe this was a post directly made within their group site, so only members within that group saw it. I don’t think the rest of the RDA community could see it (it’s not listed as a news item or in our event listings).
I definitely agree with promoting group posts to the wider community if there is value. I think we can build in a process where we can monitor posts on weekly basis to the group pages and evaluate the benefit of wider promotion. We should also reiterate the value of larger promotion to our chairs, so that they can leverage our entire community rather than just group members. Regardless, Alex and I will discuss and then update you on our recommendations. As for other news/events that are posted to the entire community, we do monitor and promote as appropriate in social media and other channels.
For this one, as it is taking place today, we can follow up to see if there’s a recap we can share in the upcoming newsletter.

Dear Comms Team,
I just noticed the following news piece
inserted by Paula Andrea Martinez username orchid00
could someone follow up with her and get more information that can be included. It is very unclear who this for, what RDA group it relates to and how someone who “might” be interested in attending can actually contact someone?
are these news / events pieces moderated by us? if so we should check that the information is valuable and usable by the community. If not, perhaps we should be moderating them 🙂
