Advisory Councils and Committees

The Spina Bifida Association Marketing & Communications committee will serve as an advisory role to the Marketing & Communications staff to support communication strategy and efforts that support the strategic goals of the Spina Bifida Association. The committee will serve as a sounding board for marketing initiatives, strategies, develop and hone innovative ideas, create timely and important resources, and provide feedback on marketing activities as requested by the marketing team.

Members provide a diverse perspective on the needs and expectations of the Spina Bifida community and point SBA to the valuable community, national, and even international resources. The service term is two years, and members may choose to re-apply at the end of their term.

To benefit from as many community perspectives as possible, SBA strives to include members from various areas of the country, and diverse socioeconomic levels, ages, ethnicities, professions, and backgrounds.
