Contribute content…

…for social media

Curating relevant and up-to-date content for TCD social media accounts on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook requires the contributions of many. Have you encountered an article or piece of media that you believe is relevant to our division? When you do, please consider submitting the item to the ATA TCD Social Media Posts web form!

Items submitted will be reviewed by the TCD social media committee prior to be posted on social media accounts. Submission does not guarantee that the item will appear on TCD social media accounts.

…including terminology

Consistent terminology makes or breaks an organization’s branding. Submit ATA-TCD-related terminology that you believe requires standardization via the ATA TCD Terminology web form!

Items submitted will be reviewed by the TCD communications committee and a glossary of preferred terminology will be published on this website.

“I truly believe each of us has a unique talent or strength. If we share our experiences with each other, the association and its members will benefit and thrive. This is my opportunity to directly share my experience with an organization that has given me so much.”
