The Mass Email User Group (MEUG) is starting up again. Our first meeting of the new academic year will be:
Tuesday, Sept. 29
Morrill Hall 238A
With the surge of internal communications to students, faculty, and staff, we're kicking off the year with an internal focus.
First up will be Matt Sumera, Internal Communications Manager for University Relations. Internal Communications group has been developing standards and guidelines for internal communications at the University, from content to branding to frequency and beyond.
Time permitting, we'll move into discussion on the text part of mass email, also with an internal slant. We'll look at how GopherMail renders messages for its users and some of the considerations you need to take into account when constructing your message. Have your own tips and tricks on how to deal with this? Bring 'em along.
This is a great opportunity to meet some of other senders of mass email at the University, learn from one another, and hear and feed back into central standards development.
No need to register or RSVP unless you'll be attending remotely. We've got three extra slots saved for the conference call and will do screen sharing over UMConnect. Shoot a note to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in attending remotely and we'll send you connection information.
We'll have some sort of afternoon treat, but it is BYOB(everage).
