As you may have heard we're looking for a new Turtley Times newsletter editor. It is a great way to volunteer with the club!
What's involved?: Every month you put together Turtley Times newsletter that is mailed out to all of our subscribers.
How?: Training will be provided by the current newsletter editor who will also act as the backup in case you need a month off. We use the internet program Mailchimp to create our newsletter and manage our subscribers. Wiki Commons provides a lot of reference photos and the program Snagit is used to create some of the photo collages but this is not a requirement.
Subscribers are managed directly through Mailchimp. Subscribers can sign-up or remove themselves from our list automatically. Every few months there are folks who ask to join at the monthly meeting and those must be manually input.
Content: Content is either given by Sharon, our president, or found by you the editor. Simple news searches related to turtles and tortoises give great articles. Our Yahoo Groups often post up about up-coming events and our members will often have requests to be posted.
Hours?: The time put into the newsletter each month can vary from 2-4 hours. It all depends on how creative you want to be with it. Cat, our current editor, enjoys photography so spends more time playing with photos.
Why is she leaving?: Cat has been the editor for 2+ years and as well as the website editor. She's hoping to be able to spend more time developing the website and possibly volunteering in other areas of the club.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org where Cat can answer any questions you have about what is involved in developing the newslettter.
We’ve added an easy “Subscribe to the Turtley Times” button to the website. Located under the Newsletter section of the website it will allow visitors to our site to sign-up for the Turtley Times directly through MailChimp (our newsletter mailer). Check it out!
