HELLO MY EASTERN STAR CHAPTER IS CALLING
Our Grand Chapter introduced a new project this year – a calling system. It allows a personalized voice (or text message) to be sent out to folks who wish to receive such messages. Esther Chapter #3 in Carson City piloted the system over the past year. The reviews have been quite favorable. Members stated that it was helpful to be reminded about events. Others said it was heartfelt to receive positive messages on special days, such as their birthday and holidays. The possibilities of improved communication are endless.
To implement the system, Esther Chapter identified one person to dictate and distribute a message to those who wished to receive messages. The majority of the messages were 30 to 60 seconds in length and none were more than 90 seconds. The messages had to do with reminding folks of upcoming Chapter events or last-minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances (like the weather).
Sunrise Chapter voted to participate in this system for those members who wish to be included. The cost for the system is $2 per telephone number per year. However, the cost to the Chapter would only be $1 per telephone number and the Grand Chapter will pay the additional $1 for the first year. There is no cost to the individual member. A member may choose to ‘opt-out’ of the system at any time without any penalty. It would be totally up to the member and Chapter if we decided to continue after the first year.
Would YOU like one (or more) of your telephone numbers to be included in our Chapter’s Call System? You can ‘opt-in’ easily by clicking HERE. Please list what telephone number(s) you wish included. Remember: if at any time you wish to be removed from the list, you can just ‘opt-out’ when given that choice at the end of every message, or give us a call, text, or email and we will remove your number. Our goal is to improve communication between our members and our Chapter. We hope that you will choose to participate.
