RPCV/W's Communication Strategy - Part 1: Understanding Our Audience

We’ve fielded a few requests lately from representatives of fellow RPCV groups who want to know how we optimize our website and social media accounts to best engage our members and support our group’s activities. In the following three posts, I will outline our communications strategy-- not just its function, but the rationale behind it --and the safeguards designed to sustain it long into the future.
