With IYC 2011 well underway, the California Section is averaging about one event per week, which causes me to ask for your input regarding the optimum method of communcation of event details to our members. Of course, we don't want them to be inundated with emails from us, nor do we want them to have to spend too much effort searching online for information on events. Given the pace of the event schedule, "snail mail" communications are also not feasible, and besides, we have moved almost all of our communications online (one exception being annual elections).
We have several choices on communicating event details to our members:
1) The ACS Network,
2) Direct Email,
3) Our section's website, and
4) Linking somehow to emails that already come from another source (such as ACS National),
5) Did I miss anything?
I can see advantages and disadvantages to each, but do any of you have any "best practices" for communications between a local section officers and the section's members?
If we can get more members to use the ACS Network, that would be the way to go...as they say to Connect, Communicate, and Collaborate!
