Our new Google email group
Over the past couple sketch outings I've attended, I've discussed forming a email group on the Google Groups platform. Most everyone was supportive so this week I started adding email addresses of those who indicated they wanted to join it.
When our founder, Frances Buckmaster, retired from her role as the Lead Administrator, her private email group was retired as well. In the past, when members of Urban Sketchers Tacoma received emails about outings and other information of interest, it was via her private group.
So another method of communication was needed. While there is a Facebook group, I do not want that to be the only way with which to communicate as there are some people who, understandably, will not join Facebook.
This group is our informal information communication forum. Upcoming sketch outings will be posted there. It's also a place to ask questions and share other information of interest to our members.
To post to this group, send email to USkTacoma@googlegroups.com. Any member may initiate or reply to a message. Just remember, if you just click "reply" it goes to everyone. If you only want to reply to one person, you have to change the address in the "to" line to that of the one person!
If you would like to join and haven't indicated that at a sketch outing recently, there is now a "widget" in the right side margin of this blog: "Join our Google group". Put your email adress in the box and answer the question. Myself and another admin will receive your request and add you to the group.
