Announcements of August 24th

Changes Coming For Our Community Announcements
We are excited that our next set of community announcements will have a completely different look because we are switching to Mailchimp to format them! Besides the visual improvements we will also be able to offer a variety of lists to be on, allowing for a more targeted experience. As an example, one of those lists will be jobs/trainings. If you just want to receive that type of info then you will be able to select that list to be on. Another great feature is the unsubscribing function. Occasionally we get requests to be removed from our announcements and with Mailchimp it will happen easier and quicker. Watch for the next set of announcements and we hope you like it!
