New Newsletter Editor
As you may already be aware, we are in the process of changing newsletter editors. Many, many thanks to Ann Koenig for the excellent job she did administering this important Chapter feature. As Jessica Kelling takes over the reigns of the newsletter she will continue her work as our Webmaster. Serving as Chapter Communication Liaison, she will coordinate all Chapter communications efforts including digital and print media.
Electronic Newsletter Format
During the newsletter editor transition period the Chapter Executive Committee thought it might be a good time to experiment a little on how we deliver the news to our membership. As a result, the Chapter has published our very first electronic newsletter. Click here to find the latest updates on what’s going on within the Chapter as well as links to news of interest throughout the world of arboriculture.
Please take a look at this electronic version and let us know if this new delivery system works for you. Electronic distribution could help us hold down costs and would also allow us to provide much more information in a much more timely fashion while reducing our paper consumption.
