The “Website & Communications Sub-Committee (WCSC)” has been established at our last 2014 AGM. The main goal of the WCSC is to disseminate information related to ASPS and plant biology among the Society members and the general public.
The WCSC is in charge of updating the content in the social media platforms representing ASPS and formatting the website. In addition to our www.asps.org.au website, ASPS manages a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ASPSozplants) and a Twitter account (@asps_ozplants). WCSC will also liaise with ASPS members seeking suggestions about the website functionality and content in an attempt to improve exposure, interest and visibility. The WSCS consists of four ASPS members and one ASPS student representative. The WSCS is chaired by Dr Gonzalo Estavillo. Dr Janet Wheeler provides technical support and coordinates the website maintenance with the developer (Michael Major Media); Dr Chris Cazzonelli is editor of “Phytogen” including design and content. The student representative that helps to coordinate and manage social media, interact with other student members, and provide feedback to the other members of the WSCS and is currently vacant.
We would like to encourage all members to send their suggestions and ideas about how to improve our ASPS website and help disseminate our activities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conjoint Professor Tina Offler helped as “Phytogen” co editor from 20115 to 2017.
