Hi all. In prior calls, we’ve discussed the sending of an email to new members, welcoming them to RDA. I would like to implement this new communication asap as I believe it is an opportunity to personally welcome each member and give them a quick overview of how they can engage with us, without overwhelming them.
I recommend the process be as follows:
* Upon a new member registration, RDA Communications will distribute a welcome e-mail within one week of approving the registration
* Status of communication (member name, timing of communication) will be updated here.
Additionally, I recommend the e-mail be signed by Hilary and any regional-specific and additional info be distributed to members via future communication, which would be developed and managed by each region.
At this time, Jamie in the RDA-US office has agreed to take on distribution of this initial communication. However, it would be wonderful if this is something that can be automated. Regardless of how it is sent out, I will take the lead on ensuring it is updated as needed to ensure accuracy of information.
Please review the draft communication developed at… and add comments/suggestions for improvement to content/process.
For added reference, I created a sub-folder in the RDA Secretariat folder titled “New Member Info” which includes this file, as well as the process document and tracking file. If there’s another location that should be used for storage of this info, please advise.
Thank you.
