Website Task Force Members


The IPA has invested heavily in a new website, and much development work has been undertaken. But more work remains to be done and, pending a review of the IPA's communications organisation, a Website Task Force is charged with driving this development in the interim to ensure that momentum is not lost.


The Website Task Force shall have a Mandate until the IPA Board of Representatives has fully considered and decided upon a Communication strategy. At that point, it will be proposed that the Website Task Force be transformed into a regular IPA Committee.

Until that time, the Website Task Force shall:

  1. develop an interim strategy for the IPA website which ensures that it is targeted at the IPA's two main target audiences: the IPA's own Members, and people working in related professional fields (eg, psychiatry);
  2. commission and develop lively content, in particular ensuring that the website feels to users as if it is being continuously developed and reinvented;
  3. take editorial control and responsibility for all aspects of the website;
  4. instruct the IPA webmaster accordingly.

The Task Force shall meet as frequently as seems convenient.

Meetings shall not generally be face-to-face, but will be by free GoToMeeting or Skype or similar, only using conference calls where absolutely necessary.

The Task Force will take over the remainder of the 2013 budget provision in case there is an unavoidable need for a conference call, and to cover any other expenses (eg, relating to the development of website content or structure or design).
