The Communications Committee of Triangle SfN serves as a liaison to foster communication between the chapter and the public. We also help advertise and promote Triangle SfN events, news, and outreach opportunities via our Facebook and Twitter accounts. The Communications Committee is responsible for publishing the Triangle Transmitter, a newsletter that highlights Triangle SfN chapter events and other local science news.



  • Publish Triangle SfN’s newsletter, the Triangle Transmitter. 
  • Manage the calendar of Triangle science events.
  • Manage and update Triangle SfN’s social media accounts.
  • Work with other SfN Committees and local scientists to promote events and meetings.
