Focus to transition to Web newsletter
The UMMS Public Affairs & Publications staff frequently discuss ways to keep Focus dynamic and relevant, and we have determined that transitioning from a printed newsletter to a Web-based newsletter isone of the best ways to do this. Not only will this allow usto add news stories immediately rather than waiting for the next month’s issue, it will provide us with virtually unlimited space to tell more of the stories that engageour internal audience. We see this transition as making an already valuable resource even better. A Web version of the monthly newsletter is environmentally sustainable, as well.
The Web version of Focus will debut in August and will initially include the same features as the print version, including inserts from selected departments. As the Web version evolves, we hope to add additional features. We’re excited about the opportunity to deliver news and information about the institution in a more contemporary and efficient way.
Look for an e-mail in early August with links to the new Focus website.
