About the Comms Team
The Section W-1S Communications Team is responsible for several key aspects of communication and messaging for the section. The team was originally formed in 2016 as the section social media team. In 2017, the team was expanded and renamed the communications team.
The mission of the Section W-1S Communications Team is to connect, share, and inspire the Arrowmen of Section W-1S and support the communications needs of the section and the lodges it serves.
What We Do
The team operates the various social media accounts for the section including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and Flickr.
The team manages and updates the official section website, sectionw1s.org.
The section mobile app, currently under redesign, is also operated created and updated by the team.
The comms team operates the section texting service, where you can sign up to receive important updates, announcements, and reminders of things happening around the section.
Text @w-1s to 81010 to sign up.
In addition to the actual product that you can see the team produce (i.e. social media post, website article, etc.) the team also provides a variety of communications support for the section. Support includes managing the section email service, promoting the section brand, and providing training and resources for Arrowmen.
The comms team is operated under the following structure.
NOTE: Not all positions may be filled at any given time. The comms team youth lead fills in where necessary.

Youth Team Members
Between countless tie-dye mishaps and selling free-range kombucha at the local farmer’s market, Matthew finds peace by cross-legged on a mountaintop, having deep conversations with the breeze. When he’s not wasting his time attempting to catch his first fish, he is kept busy herding the cool cats that make up the Section Comms Team. If you meet this magical unicorn in person, be sure to ask him about his invisible Siamese twin, Roberta.

Born deep in the jungles of Uruguay and raised by a pack of jaguars, Joe Grant first ventured to the United States at the age of 9, where he competed in the World Concrete Eating Championship, setting the current record of 6 city blocks.
Joe was adopted in 2016 by the OA National Vice-Chief, Tyler Inberg, who taught Joe the ways of the Jedi, and the secrets of advising a Comms Team. Wielding this weapon of knowledge, Joe vowed he would make right the mistakes of his past and fix the Section website once and for all. To this day, his legend lives on in these stylesheets.
In his spare time, he enjoys long walks into the depths of volcanoes, stand-up paddleboarding on space whales, and creating thunderstorms with his mind.
