1. Maintain and update electronic mailout list from Excel spreadsheet received from Membership Secretary, which is sent to Executive members monthly.
2. Request information by email from relevant Executive members for insertion into the Bulletin:
• Vice-President for speaker information and photo
3. If any other articles are to be included in the Bulletin, include that Executive member in the email. Give deadline as to when this information is to be received – generally this is the weekend before the next Executive meeting.
4. When possible, attend Executive meetings on the second Tuesday of each month to obtain the necessary information from your fellow executives, including: new members; who makes/serves coffee; etc., as well as issues concerning the Club which are to be inserted in the bulletin.
5. Each bulletin evolves essentially around the guest speaker for that month, the subject matter and then, the season, with any space left over after the regular inserts (3 above), you could research anything perhaps related to perennials; for example, when best to transplant/divide, names of top twenty perennials for current year etc. After that, space fillers could be anything relevant to that time of year for gardeners, always remembering our membership runs the full gamut of abilities from complete beginners to the extremely knowledgeable, and we hope to include something of interest to everyone. Relevant graphics, anecdotes, gardening quotes or hints are useful ways to fill in small spaces or to use as segues to an article.
6. Each month start with the bulletin template and begin updating. When the bulletin is ready, save as .PDF file (to lock in formatting). Email copy of .PDF document to yourself and bcc to all members on the mailing list. Membership Secretary will print out and mail hard copy to members who are not on the electronic mailing list.
7. The bulletin content is specific, but the way in which the Bulletin Coordinator chooses to relay the information on behalf of the Club is, to a great extent, a reflection of that individual’s creativity and abilities – not to mention time constraints; the process is not carved in stone. Complicated formatting, sizing graphics, downloading photos, etc., may make a fun challenge for some Bulletin Co-ordinators, but is certainly not essential to making the bulletin a successful way of passing along relevant, timely information to the membership.
8. Most important, have fun with it – it’s a great, satisfying, albeit sometimes challenging, volunteer opportunity!
