DCBA Launches “Your” Newsletter!

It’s designed to move DCBA into an active virtual community with lots of interactions by and between members. 

A virtual community requires a little more participation by members for it to work, but it should also bring more value to all of you.

The kind of interactions we have in mind are:  

 Your favorite articles and news items,

Your personal – even promotions and job changes - and opportunity messages,

 Your suggestions about potential future events,

 Your ideas about how to improve the Newsletter,  …

I could go on, but you get the idea.  One thing, though, notice “Your” is vital to this becoming successful!  Later, we may use a blog and social software; meanwhile send Your submissions to me, thanks, Jerry.
