|Chapter Email Service to End: Easy to Use Options Available|
ACHE will discontinue basic broadcast email service for chapters as of Dec. 31, 2012. We will be combining the chapter roster tool and the chapter query tool to give you access to your membership lists. In one convenient location, you will be able to download a spreadsheet of your entire membership or targeted queries such as C-suite members, early careerists and Members eligible to advance to Fellow status.
Many chapters have already started using alternative broadcast vendors. Triangle Healthcare Executives Forum (THEF) in North Carolina recently switched to Eventbrite.
“From my perspective, Eventbrite has been a really great resource to help market our events and send out communications to our members,” said THEF President Kyle Dorsey. “It is much more flexible and customizable than the previous method. We really appreciated ACHE’s help, but Eventbrite just makes it so easy!”
Alabama Healthcare Executives uses both Eventbrite and Constant Contact. The chapter uses Eventbrite to market its events and to handle online registration and Constant Contact for all other communications such as sending out its newsletter.
A list of recommended broadcast vendors can be accessed here. Chapters are encouraged to review our list, but feel free to check out other vendors that could meet your needs. Let us know if you have a broadcast vendor to recommend, and we may add them to the list.
If you have any additional questions, please contact your regional director or Sheila Brown, chapter specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 424-9316. They are familiar with each vendor’s basic services. In addition, ask us about other chapters who are using Eventbrite and Constant Contact. They would be happy to share their experiences. Please contact vendors directly with questions about pricing.
