How Social Media is Changing the Peace Corps

Through the Noise #13

Erica Burman // Communications Director // National Peace Corps Association

It’s clear that social media is changing the way organizations market themselves. Erica Burman, communications director for the National Peace Corps Association, explains how the use of social media and technology is changing the Peace Corps volunteer experience, and what it means for the future of the organization.

In addition to being an editor of Worldview Magazine, Erica oversees all of NPCA’s communications, public relations, marketing, branding and social media. She pioneered NPCA’s use of online communities and social media – establishing an early Peace Corps community presence on Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and moving the organization to an electronic newsletter.

Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the National Peace Corps Association is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization connecting and championing Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and the Peace Corps community.
