New look e-newsletter 

Why do we have a new look Bulletin?

Reviewing our Communications Strategy, with the wonderful Mairi Damer from Word Up, we decided it was time for a change. We wanted to make our Bulletin sleeker, smarter and straight to the point! You CLD peeps are busy folk, so we want to offer you all the exciting information without you needing to scroll down your screens for hours.

We even went on a short writing seminar to help us, can you tell?

With exciting developments across our members benefits such as the “Have Your Say” sessions on consultations and policy, along with “Equality Diversity & Inclusion Members Forum” and re-starting up our monthly “Member Meet Ups” we still have a lot to tell you about, so we hope you like it!

As part of our comms review, we asked how you wanted us to communicate with you. A huge thanks to all of you who responded. The feedback was crystal clear, with social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook high up on the list of preferred methods, along with LinkedIn, emails and our newsletter e-bulletin, although you did alert us to the fact people weren’t always able to read our bulletin every week as you are busy… so that’s why we have gone monthly and added further information on our website to support it so you can access what you want, when you want to.

You Said… We Did…

Have you have noticed our improved use of social media? It’s a start and we are trying to get better at it so please give us a like, retweet and share whenever you can. As you suggested, we have set up a new closed Facebook group for our members to communicate more easily, we created a new LinkedIn page, we refreshed the CLD Standards Council SLACK Channel and please don’t forget about our old favourites – Twitter and i-develop !

WATCH THIS SPACE: Next steps will be to overhaul our website, with a fresher, brighter and more user-friendly design. We really value your input and we will be looking for your feedback on all these developments towards the end of the year. What works for you matters to us…. our members matter!
