SFA is a farmer networking organization, making communication key to furthering our mission. But historically, for many reasons, it hasn’t always been easy for SFA Chapters and Groups to quickly and easily communicate information to their members.
Thanks to improved technology options, we are currently upgrading our database management system and as a result are announcing another new feature to help chapters and groups operate effectively and efficiently. Building on the heels of our recent SFA Event Entry form system, we now have built a similar intake page for chapters and groups to quickly email your entire membership.
The form sends an instant alert to SFA communications staff, who, assuming the email content is appropriate and aligns with SFA’s mission, will send the email using SFA-branded templates as soon as possible, usually within two business days.
The emails must be submitted by a chapter coordinator or board member and contain information about SFA-specific programming. Is your chapter hosting or co-sponsoring an event, annual meeting, or field day? Seeking member feedback? Writing a chapter- or group-specific newsletter? Great – simply input your text and contact information into the form.
Have photos you’d like to add? Email those, along with any questions on this system, to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
