IMPORTANT CHANGES TO OUR MEMBERSHIP SYSTEM – THIS AFFECTS YOU!
At last! The Sky Blue Trust is about to make its communications and membership systems state of the art. And about time to, you may say - under our previous and interim web-based and data handling systems your ability to communicate with us and how we communicate with you has been cumbersome at best and next to impossible at worst. Even the ability of new members to join (and to know they have joined) has been constrained by the need to use methods more suited to 1987 than 2018!
Well – no more. Under our new system, joining the Trust and the ability of new and existing members’ ability to manage changes in their data profile, as well as being able to engage with us on wider matters more directly, will be massively enhanced.
But, first things first.We are conscious that the data that you as members have provided to us when joining the Trust has been very difficult for you and us to subsequently update or modify. It is also the case that in the future the overwhelming majority of the communications between us will have to be by e-mail. So:
We are planning to e-mail in the next week or so each individual member for whom we have valid e-mail addresses. This email will contain the key data that you have already provided to us – mainly full name, e-mail address, phone number and postal address – and will ask you make any additions or updates to that information. The e-mail will tell you how you will be able to make such amendments to the data that we hold for you.
A small number of our members have not provided us with an e-mail address that appears to be still valid or have not provided us with an e-mail address at all. ARE YOU ONE OF THESE MEMBERS? If you think you are could you mail us here at:
including in your e-mail your full name and the e-mail address that you want us to use, plus, if possible, your current postal address and telephone number.
Over the next few weeks we are intending to contact any member for whom, despite the above, we still do not have a valid e-mail address. This will be a time consuming and lengthy process, despite the small numbers involved. So PLEASE LET US HAVE A VALID E-MAIL ADDRESS NOW IF YOU KNOW OR ARE PRETTY CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE NOT PROVIDED US WITH YOUR CURRENT ONE. Again, the address to contact us on is:
We are very excited about the improvements in our communications and campaigns that the modernisation of our systems will make possible. These improvements will only be possible if we hold the information that will allow us to keep in contact with you. That’s why we are asking you to help us in this way.
Very many thanks!
The Board of the Sky Blue Trust
