Independent Examiner’s Final Recommendation
ALAC should arrange for the designation of one of its support staff as a part-time Web Community Manager who will be responsible, inter alia, for coordinating outreach via social media (Rec 8). These responsibilities could be allocated to an existing member of staff.
Need for increased At-Large Community awareness and staff training regarding the use of social media.
Does ALAC Support Recommendation?
|The ALAC supports the intent of this recommendation
If Not, Please Provide Reasoning.
If ALAC Does Not Support Recommendation, Does It Suggest an Alternative Recommendation?
If so, please provide a suggested alternative Recommendation.
It is the understanding of the ALAC that this is a function already allocated to At-Large support staff, albeit perhaps with a different title. The ALAC supports the designation on At-Large support staff to help enhance its use of Social Media.
It is unclear to the ALAC why the term "Web Community Manager" is used or the relevance of the title. It is also unclear exactly how this recommendation differs from Recommendation 8.
|The ALAC does note that assignment of staff is not a function that its volunteer community has any control over. It is beyond the scope of the At-Large volunteer community to take such action.
Who Will Implement?
