Hi folks, please see the following message from Martha Katz-Hyman:
As you’ll read in the forthcoming Summer Bulletin, at this past June’s annual meeting, the ALHFAM Board approved the development of some kind of e-mail communication that will include ALHFAM news & information, news from the regions and the PIGS, information about ALHFAM regional & annual meetings, and information about other conferences, meetings, etc., that might be of interest to our members. Basic information about annual & regional meetings, as well as fellowships, will continue to appear in the Bulletin, but the “News from Other Pastures” and PIG & CORN news will be on the ALHFAM website & this new e-mail newsletter. We hope to launch this new newsletter when the Fall Bulletin is published. Those of you who belong to other professional organizations, or belong to community organization of any type, or run your own business, may already get this type of newsletter, or you may be the person who sends one out! I’ve gone looking at the various companies that offer this service, and the choice is mind-boggling! Therefore, I’m asking for suggestions as to what provider might work best for ALHFAM (fewer than 1,000 e-mail addresses; non-profit) in terms of ease of use in importing e-mail addresses, keeping track of bounce-backs, putting the e-mail together (e.g., inserting images, links, etc.), reliability, etc. The more specific your suggestions, the more helpful they will be! Thank you!
