Require BoD members to author at least one article per year for the newsletter that is appropriate and may be of interest to the group membership.
The relevancy of newsletters can be improved by including editorial content that is practical and focused for the targeted audience. For example, the Extrusion Division runs a column called “Extrusion Hints” that offers simple and practical ideas that are often overlooked during daily operations.
Some Divisions publish their ANTEC best papers in their newsletter.
Consider publishing book reviews, aimed at subject areas of the highest interest to the group’s membership.
Include a discussion group on the group’s website where members can post a question and be connected to someone with a solution/answer.
The Journal of Vinyl & Additive Technology is supported by the Vinyl Division, Polymer Modifiers & Additives Division and the New Jersey Palisades Section.
The Journal of Applied Medical Products is supported by the Medical Plastics Division.
The Journal of Injection Molding Technology is supported by the Injection Molding Division.
Consider serializing an excellent book in your newsletter that speaks to your group’s focus. It is an easy way to add fantastic content to your newsletter and to start a dialogue.
