CPAGS Committees

The work of CPAGS could not be done without the help of the committee members. Committees provide support to the CPAGS Board of Directors and help accomplish the day to day work that is so critical to the success of CPAGS. Becoming a committee member is a great way to become involved with minimal time commitment. It's also a great stepping stone to running for position on the CPAGS Board!

The committee shall include the Director at Large for Advocacy serving as Chair, the CPAGS Chair-Elect, the Division I Representative, and any other members appointed by the Advocacy Committee Chair.  The committee shall inform graduate students about current legislative issues, train students on leadership and advocacy issues, and plan and coordinate all student activities related to advocacy.

Communications Committee

Communications Director: Lorenzo Aranda, MS

The Communications Committee is comprised of the Communications Director serving as Committee Chair, the CPAGS Chair, and any other members appointed by the Communications Chair.  The purpose of the committee is to serve as an educational resource for the membership, oversee the CPAGS website, and oversee all CPAGS member communications through the creation, revision and distribution of all marketing and membership materials.
Committee members will be actively involved in keeping content on the CPAGS website, Facebook page, and Twitter feed up to date and current. These are crucial tasks to keeping CPAGS members informed and up-to-date. Your ideas on how to connect students are welcome! Want to write and publish a blog about a topic of interest? Are there organizations or events in California you feel students should really know about? Do you have ideas for a video to promote CPAGS membership? How about a series of interviews with professionals in our field? The Communications Committee is the place to accomplish this and more!
