As a nonprofit association we are particularly mindful of our responsibility to be good stewards of our resources. We regularly review operations for saving of time, materials and money. A current review of our newsletter operations indicates that substantial savings of money and paper would result from reducing the number of printed copies of our newsletter.
Online and email publication will also allow us to present more colorful and dynamic newsletter without additional costs, provide more timely articles and notifications and broaden our audience. This broader audience, in addition to implementing web-optimization tools, is expected to result in increased advertising revenue. Our goal is to have a self-sustaining newsletter that decreases our environmental impact.
For those members without a computer or who are uncomfortable with a digital format, we will continue to mail a printed newsletter. Non-members will not be eligible for a printed copy but may access the newsletter online or via email. Anyone may also come by the King William Association office which will have a few printed copies available to read.
Please help us do our part to use our resources wisely by only requesting a printed copy if you do not have access to a computer or are not comfortable with a digital format. To request a printed copy, send a written request or contact the KWA office.
Thank you for your continued support of the King William Association!
