In our crowded lives, the last thing we wish for is unwanted mail, email, or both. We are always mindful of this when we publicize courses and events coming up in our organization.
Some prefer “hard copy” information, and we’ve done this since our beginning, 15 years ago, with newsletters. Presently this newsletter runs to 8 pages, and we send it three times/year to a large mailing list by bulk mail, about a month before a new term comes up for registration. This process costs us about a dollar per newsletter, most of which is for printing. Like most organizations, we’d like to reduce this cost.
Email is the second, and the most cost-effective of our publicity tools. These also go to a large list of people through a commercial tool called “Constant Contact.” It is fast, convenient for you, the reader, and will take up little space in your email page. We manage this by giving you a link to our website, www.cvec.org, and a reminder that the newsletter can be seen in full on our third tool.
Our third tool of course is our website. Again, this is VERY cost effective, and offers a great deal of information. It is available to anyone in the world who uses the web.
However, if you prefer the more personal connection by mail or email, and are not currently receiving these—–do let the webmaster know. That person is currently Ed Lufkin, (firstname.lastname@example.org.) Our best wishes for useful connections! Ed
