Conference Weekly E-Newsletters to Go On Hiatus

Conference Weekly E-Newsletters to Go On Hiatus

Share
The weekly email newsletters of the Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island conferences will be going on hiatus this summer, while new communication strategies are researched and put into place for fall.

This week's editions will be the last separate email newsletters for the three conferences, which are moving toward uniting together to form a new conference. The United Church of Christ national meeting, General Synod, will be voting next week on whether to approve formation of the new conference, which would then officially come into being on Jan. 1. 

Next week, a special Synod edition of the newsletter will be sent out to readers in all three Conferences. Then for the following eight weeks, no Conference-specific weekly newsletters will be published. Informational emails will be sent out to various constituent groups as needed. Regular email newsletter publications covering the entire new conference will begin in late August.

"The formation of a new conference gives us a unique opportunity to take a step back and evaluate our communication practices," said Tiffany Vail, Associate Conference Minister for Communications. "I have been working with a small group of volunteers to help envision what effective communication might look like in this new, larger setting. The slower pace of summer gives us the ideal time to dig deep, examine statistics and best practices, and plan some experiments for fall."

Previous editions of newsletters can be found in the newsletter archive.

Readers can subscribe to various subject-specific newsletters via the subscription page.
