Third installment in the “Check it out.
The conversation weighed on me. The more I thought about it, the more convinced I was that regardless of how short our resources were, we had to do the e-news. So we started one. The first efforts were irregularly issued and done just through our email system so not very attractive. But, when Don Byrne came on board he researched software and found Constant Contact and Don is now responsible for pulling together the now weekly e-newsletter. The events and the e-newsletter merge together since once a month Don posts the events for the coming month (today’s e-news, for example, had April events) and each week the events for the next 10 days are included.
The e-newsletter has also generated excitement within our staff which has driven many of them to do a better job of listing all of their programs in the database with the end result that regular customers and potential visitors can keep informed about what is available in Virginia State Parks. Sign up for the e-newsletter today. You can even refer to some archived issues at the sign-up page.
