Annual Meeting Blog. We thought it would be a great way to share meeting highlights and provide travel tips from the local members who know and love the city of Boston. Using the blog, we expanded on our usual channels of communications and invited our members to add their own contributions.
We thought the blog worked pretty well! So well, in fact, that we’ve decided to change the blog’s focus from the meeting to all things ACHA and college health.
We’ll be discussing ACHA’s programs and resources and how to get the most out of them, hot topics in college health, committee projects and affiliate meetings, and everything in between. And because we really believe in a “for members-by members” philosophy, much of what we will be sharing will come directly from our members. You’ll hear from board members, committee, coalition, and task force members, and affiliate leaders. You’ll also read posts by members who want to share their experiences with Healthy Campus 2020, ACHA-NCHA, the annual meeting, and other ACHA programs.
This blog offers us a new, informal way to reach our members and for them to reach us. A good blog helps it readers, educating and inspiring them, and in turn, its readers can provide insight that just can’t be gleaned from traditional, static mediums like a printed newsletter or a website.
So, now that we’ve told you about our goals and what we hope to achieve, what do you want to read about? If you are interested in contributing to the blog, please contact Kristen Klimo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
