As I've repeatedly said I just build a template and then we insert the
reality after the input from the committee, I have no desire to just
shove new ways of doing things down peoples throats without heavy input
first. Your points are well taken and accepted, I wasn't even aware we
had an "advertisements" email so of course we'll use that (send the
login info to Sue please).
I just take an idea and run with it, some days it's completely different
at the end and I'm all right with that, just trying to get forward
momentum to an idea is all. Just like the input from Pierre (Jack)
LePetit, it will all be incorporated in the final document. I'd still
like to hear from the rest of the committee too!

A couple things I noticed that you may or may not want to correct.
The advertisement list is currently advertiseme...@wispa.org
<mailto:advertiseme...@wispa.org> not a...@wispa.org
<mailto:a...@wispa.org>. If you plan on changing it, ok, but I thought
I better point out that correction if needed.
The second thing is that you may want to be careful making PR
announcements through announcme...@wispa.org
<mailto:announcme...@wispa.org>. When WISPA was small, it worked ok,
but as the audience grew and the number of vendors increased, it
became apparent that we needed to modify this. There were a lot of
members (mailing list members) that became overwhelmed with the
increase in PR type announcements and they continually asked to be
excluded from the announcements list. Rather than diminish the power
of the announcements mailing list, I only put PR on the webpage and
Suzanne or I would use social media to point readers to the website if
they wanted to read the full PR article. I've been there and done
that. You can proceed as you like but I must warn you that you will
find yourself creating a lot of work and disappointed members if you
proceed with your plan as defined.

*Subject:* [WISPA Promotion] Proposed email to membership
The board has provided us with the mandate to unify the message of
WISPA, provide better monitoring of ads, more closely monitor what
constitutes an "Announcement", and increase the updates to the various
social media including our website. The letter below is my proposed
letter to membership, wide open to your edits. I look forward to your
*NEW PROCEDURE FOR WEBSITE, SOCIAL NETWORKING, ANNOUNCEMENTS AND
Recently the Board of Directors of WISPA approved transitioning all
electronic communication responsibility to the Promotion Committee.
This was done so we have a common message on all platforms and because
we have the benefit of a Promotion Contractor who will have the time
to monitor and maximize a uniform message from a media background.
How this affects you:
If you are a Vendor Member and you wish to send an "Approved Ad"
you'll send it to a...@wispa.org <mailto:a...@wispa.org> Suzanne Urash,
our contractor will be responsible for tracking the four ads a year
included at that level of membership and for billing of additional ads
beyond the package number.
If you have an "Announcement" email which is one that is sent to all
members on and off-lists. It should be sent to announceme...@wispa.org
<mailto:announceme...@wispa.org>. Approved announcements will then be
cross posted on social media for WISPA. Because of the increased
exposure we will slightly tighten up the criteria for this as it will
have a wider reach.
If you simply want us to post to our website and social media with an
event simply (ads on the website are a separate cost) send that to
webs...@wispa.org <mailto:webs...@wispa.org>, that will not be sent to
Announcement email but if qualified will be posted. Beyond Facebook
and our website we hope to increase Twitter alerts for close deadline
events and webinars, and will work to increase participation by
membership in that account.
Please write down these emails, we look forward to a more streamlined
and uniform method of helping to promote your business and events with
this updated process.
