A page for communications people to look at physical activity campaign communications nationally and across the region. We are looking at how we can share campaign info from related areas that may be relevant to our audience.

We are looking at four elements keep the communications community conected:
  1. Web resource as a reference tool.
  2. Regular updates email sent monthly, sign up below if yup don’t get them.
  3. Discussion portal. Google Groups seems an open idea for a hub discussion (watch this space)
  4. Live / virtual meetings.
