ISHA Technology and Communication Committee

A person using social media

The ISHA Technology and Communication Committee oversees ISHA website creation and management, social media management and digital strategy development, optimising the ASM app and introducing new web-based technologies.

The Committee, under the leadership of the dedicated Website Task Force, has developed a new ISHA website that is modern and user-friendly and will help members, patients and prospective members to get to the information that matters most to them.

In addition to a great website, a good way to draw attention to ISHA’s activities is through social media. While the Communication and Technology Committee has been working very hard to increase social media advertising of ISHA events, we would love to have some help to spread the word. If you are active on social media and would be willing to assist, please contact member@isha.net.
