2019 was a big transition year for SSCA Communications. A new website with a simplified, self-serve portal for updates and online look-up functionality was launched and there was a dramatic increase in the number of online payments through the combined Membership Directory and payment portal. This has contributed greatly to reducing administrative effort and expenses.
We also heard your feedback on the replacement of the annual Yearbook with an online Phonebook and that you would prefer to have some form of a hard copy Directory to keep by the cottage phone. So, the Board has asked the Communications Committee to develop and deliver a simplified Yearbook/Directory in Spring 2020.
It will still be as important as ever for you to keep your membership info on the website up-to-date in 2020. Paid members will see their name in this new Directory and will receive it in the May time frame.
With the return to a paper Directory, there is a great opportunity for a volunteer with publishing experience to lead up its production in 2020. Interested people should reach out to either Eric Armour or Naomi Campbell for more information.
