CCA Chapters can now make use of SurveyMonkey's "unlimited" options by way of the CCA Communciations Committee. This provides a much more useful tool for your local, as explained here in this Communications Committee PowerPoint presentation from the 2011 CCA Winter Conference: "SurveyMonkey: The Quest For Meaning In A World Gone Mad." Go ahead and download or view the file! This presentation explains in detail how you can benefit from this service. Access procedures are below.
Reaching your members is not the same as it was for our predecessors. The Web is now the default information source, making a chapter website pretty much manadatory--but more than that, we have to stay reasonably current in offering that information in the ways most typical to the Web. This means its time to look at video as a communication and organizing tool for your chapter.
You can view or download the Reaching Members Via Technology PowerPoint from this presentation, as well as visit the TED Talk on "sixth sense technology" referenced in the presentation. TED is just a cool place to hang out and learn new things, anyway--so it's worth the trip!
