Hi everyone, this is a message for current MassRID Voting Members. Some of you already know this so please bear with me, but to those of you who don't already know: MassRID has recently sent out an electronic vote ballot for the current MassRID Board.
If you've already gotten the ballot, already voted, etc, thank you! If you haven't gotten the ballot and have no idea what I'm talking about: this message is for you. Unfortunately some member information, including up-to-date email address, is out of date so you may not have received a ballot for that reason. Part of what we're doing here is updating that member information that has fallen out of date.
So, if you have NOT received an electronic ballot from MassRID at @simplyvoting.com I have three requests: first, please just check your inbox again on the off chance that you missed it. If it's not there please check your spam or trash folder to confirm that you didn't receive it. If you still don't find it please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. The eBallot closes on April 20, 2013 at midnight so please don't delay. Once you email me I can work with you to identify and hopefully resolve the problem. Worst case scenario if we cannot resolve the issue we can move onto one of our alternate options for casting your vote in the MassRID board election.
And please, if you know other voting members of MassRID PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION! It's possible that they as well have out of date information in our membership database and/or have missed this vote!
Of course, if you have any questions please contact me, Emily Kohler at email@example.com.
Hello and welcome to the new MassRID website! I’m very excited to be able to share this news with you.
We’re launching the first phase of the site which will serve primarily to communicate with our membership. We’ll have news and updates on the main page, in which we’ll plan to include both video and text. If you miss an update or want to look back, you’ll be able to do so by doing a search on the right hand side of the screen. Some of you have already seen the video updates from Denise Martinez on Youtube, and if not you can look at them here on our site.
Under the MassRID Info tab in the upper right corner of the site you’ll find our Philosophy and Mission, information about board members including email addresses, our MassRID calendar, and links to other related organizations.
Our calendar page includes individual calendars for each of the Regions, whereby each regional representative can post events and important dates. For example, you’ll see our next general meeting and workshop is posted on September 19th.
The next phase, coming soon, will add our searchable database and the ability for members to sign up online and pay via PayPal. The database will be for only members to search, and you’ll have the ability to tell us what information you’d like to keep confidential. Also, for anyone who’d prefer to fill out the membership form and mail it in with a check, you will still have that option. I’ll post more information when we’re ready to launch that piece.
Please take some time to look around the site and feel free to provide constructive feedback . You can send that to me at Web@MassRID.org.
