Volunteer Survey: the E-Newsletter Connection
In January, the Association announced the electronic Alumni Volunteer Connection, an e-mail newsletter for volunteers with the Association and the Institute. More than 4,000 volunteers were sent this message, and response to the news, announcements and links to online resources about the Institute contained in each month’s edition has been positive.
The newsletter is now six months old, and each month, we have worked to tweak the format and improve the readability of the content. Several alumni volunteers have offered e-mail or in-person feedback on the eAVC newsletter to our Association staff. We’d love to hear from more of you on how the newsletter is meeting (or not meeting) your needs.
Please consider the following questions (and any other items you feel are important) and provide your feedback to the eAVC newsletter editors. Do you read the newsletter? Do you find the information helpful and interesting? Are some items more useful and helpful than others? Are there other items or news that we should be including that would help you as a volunteer? Are their items that we should not be including, and if so, why?
Send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to eAVC Feedback, MIT Alumni Association, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, W59-200, Cambridge, MA 02139.
E-mail is a powerful medium that affords the Association a more vibrant and complex relationship with our alumni. Your feedback is crucial for us to understand how to best connect with our alumni using e-mail messages, our list serves and our e-mail newsletters.
If you are not receiving the eAVC newsletter and you are currently volunteering with the Association, please e-mail email@example.com. Remember, if you have an Infinite Connection you can double-check and update your e-mail address online at web.mit.edu/alum/infiniteconnection.html.
