We have taken to telephoning directly and now have email addresses for around 65% of members in each of the North Region Counties.
This will enable us to communicate quickly and cheaply with our region's members. We recognise that not everyone will be in a position to receive communications in this way – but the cost savings are enormous. A recent postal newsletter to BHS Durham members for whom we do not have email, relieved the County funds of almost £500 in stationary, printing and postal costs. Ouch!
Please if at all possible contact us in the Regional Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are happy to be contacted via email. Your help and support is much appreciated.
