New Director of Communications joins bishop’s staff
We are pleased to introduce Maggie Michaud as the new part-time Director of Communications beginning in 2013. Maggie will have responsibility for the website and integrating it with social media, developing a new diocesan magazine to replace the newspaper, email blasts, and assisting parishes with their communications.
I currently live in Salisbury, where I have been a proud Episcopalian for as long as I can remember. I recently graduated from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa., with a degree in Sociology and Women and Gender Studies. These majors have shown me to look beyond myself and ask what others think. I was recently the secretary at St. Andrew’s Somerset Parish in Princess Anne, where I compiled the newsletter and updated the website. I will now take this knowledge and experience and showcase it through the diocese to work to make communications easier.
By working with communications in the diocese, I want to create a relationship with the parishes and clergy that will allow for information to be seen by all. One of the first things I’ll be doing is making links with a communications person in each parish. I will work on several vehicles of communication, especially the website, and use suggestions from the parishes themselves to make it useful and accessible for everyone.
I plan to showcase the diocese through various forms of media, allowing visitors and current members of the diocese to learn what is happening. I wish to allow information to be accessible and enjoyed by everyone and I am excited to work with the Diocese of Easton in communications.
