Well, I’m talking about the guild newsletter. It’s been almost a year since we have published a newsletter. We ceased publication for lack of an editor- how sad!
At tonight’s business meeting, there was a very good discussion about lack of communications in the guild.
I listened and thought that a lot of the items mentioned could have been discussed, described,elaborated upon in a newsletter and then members would have been able to have the information at their finger tips.
I don’t think a blog is a good replacement for a newsletter, but it does have a function that is useful , such as last minute changes to programs, schedules or classes.
Many years ago when I was program chairman, I published a monthly bulletin. This was one page( double sided) with all the events of the month. I can provide some samples at the May meeting .
I would like to pass on any feedback to our new executive and program committee if you wish to leave a comment.
The multi-page newsletter is a major undertaking, and the editor and contributors often felt they were just talking to themselves, with no feedback and no guest articles submitted without severe twisting of arms.
I am not optimistic that we could publish a newsletter again, but am willing to bet that there is a need for a monthly bulletin to keep people up to date on guild doings.
Now I will bring up this discussion at the May meeting,but in the meantime could you vote for:
