The WCET Publications Committee was created to oversee WCET publications and communications. It is responsible for developing promotional brochures, pamphlets, posters, and all other printed communications, except the WCET Journal. The committee is also responsible for publishing the national country reports on the database. With the increased use of modern communication technology, the committee has assumed the additional role of website management and updating.

The name - Publications and Communications Committee - was approved in 2008 to better reflect the role of this committee.

If you would like to join this committee, please contact the Publications and Communications Committee Chairperson.
