    About the Communications and Membership Committee

    Melissa Holowaty has been the Chair of the Communications and General Membership Committee since 2017.

    "I was an SRPC member when I was a resident and was disappointed then that there was not a more robust online communications presence for a rural group. As a new member again in the past two years, I was excited by the movement to a new website platform and use of email newsletters. I wanted to help make this as successful as possible to help drive membership and through that be able to contribute to rural medical care in Canada."

    The Communications and General Membership Committee is identifying SRPC’s communications needs and priorities (through appropriate consultation), creating strategies to address the needs, and overseeing implementation of the strategies.
    • Ensuring that SRPC members are well informed on matters affecting the SRPC.
    • Ensuring SRPC is using communications technology effectively. This includes both internet-based resources, (ie website), social media, and evolving applications, recognizing that multiple means of communication will be required to meet the needs of our diverse membership.
    • Developing and periodically updating SRPC communications to members

    This committee has a diverse mandate in looking at collaborations and communications and has unfortunately only been active for the past twelve months. However, we have made renewed connections with rural medical groups in Alberta and Ontario, established a connection with "The Rounds", started a quarterly newsletter, and completely revamped our website. Content production is always the hardest thing to do and collecting that has been challenging but rewarding.

    You must be a member of the SRPC to be a member of the Committee.  Committee members must be willing to commit to a two-year term and to attend quarterly video conference meetings. Please email the SRPC to indicate your interest.
