SCAR XXXV Paper 40: SCAR Communication Activities

SCAR XXXV Delegates Meeting, Davos, Switzerland, 25-26 June 2018

SCAR XXXV Paper 40: SCAR Communication Activities 

Agenda Item: 9.1.

Person Responsible: Secretariat


Executive Summary 


Eoghan Griffin and Rosemary Nash


In this paper we provide an overview of the various forms of communication used by the Secretariat.


Delegates are asked to review the current communication activities and proposed future plans, and to provide suggestions/advice to the Secretariat. SCAR officers and chairs are asked to submit meeting reports to the Secretariat for inclusion in the SCAR Reports series. If National Committees have reports on activities that they would like to share with the SCAR community (in any language) through this series, they should be sent to the Secretariat. Delegates are asked to take note of the new online newsletter format and send suggestions and potential content ideas to the Secretariat.

Summary Budget 2018 to 2020

Following the 2016 Delegates Meeting a specific budget line for website costs has been added at USD$2,500. The costs of the online meeting provision have now been included in the “Postage and telephones” budget line. Communications activities have also had USD$11,148, allocated from the 2016 contingency funds and carried forward to 2018. Some of these funds will support the creation of “History of SCAR” and “What is SCAR” videos.
