Keeping the Community Informed – Community Mailing Lists

Voluntary groups should always ensure that they keep their communities informed about on-going projects, upcoming events and fundraising initiatives. The Community Mailing List can be an excellent resource to reach out to people who could benefit from voluntary group activities. With enhanced levels of data protection governing personal data, it’s important that mailing lists are managed in the correct way. Advances in technology applications has also enabled people without graphic design experience to produce professional looking online and hard copy newsletters.

Over the 3 hour workshop, we will:

  • -Explore practical methods of building and maintaining a community mailing list
  • -Consider the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation on how community groups handle mailing list personal data
  • -Learn how to create and distribute Newsletters via email using the Mailchimp application
  • -Learn how to use Canva templates to create graphics and edit images for inclusion in eNewsletters and hard copy newsletters
