After asking our members for input and listening to their suggestions, we have decided to break our newsletter into 6 individual categories (listed below) which people can subscribe to, based on their own interests. Therefore, as of the 1st March 2018, our newsletters will follow this improved format, allowing our members a more tailored experience for hearing about news and updates, and allowing us to update our members more frequently throughout the year.
All those who subscribe to ‘AGM News’ or ‘Charity News’ (which also subscribes you to AGM News) will get voting rights at our charity meetings and can help to steer us with big decisions we need to make. Subscribing to this category will update you on when the next AGM will be held and what items are up for voting. You may subscribe to as many or as few categories as you want, it is your choice, your charity. For more information on this, see below.
Below are the new categories which members can subscribe to, along with information on what these categories entail, as well as how many emails you can expect each year. The number of emails you may receive will vary based on how much there is to update, if these emails become too much, you may unsubscribe at any time.
Charity News – General information about our charity and the World of Alpha-1. Subscribing to this category also subscribes you to ‘AGM News’
AGM News – Information on when we will hold our Annual Group Meeting and how you can join them, as well as what issues the charity is voting on
