We have heard your feedback, some of you have expressed that you have felt out of the loop since you are not on the internet and or as social media savvy as others.
In an attempt to reach more of our base (including those who are not on social media or don’t check their email often), we are excited to announce that your LEC Officers are starting a new way of communicating with our members in San Diego through text message alerts. This program is completely optional. But we feel that it’s a great tool to get information out to everyone quickly. We will not overwhelm you with texts. And we do realize some people may have to pay for texts, so again this program is optional and the information will be available as always on the AFAalaska.org website, emails, and on our Facebook page.
We are borrowing this technology from school districts as to save costs from designing a system or paying a company to send mass texts.
The enrollment process is simple, all you need to do is send a text message from your personal phone.
Open your text messaging application. In the send to field enter 81010 and then enter @AFALEC15 in the body of the text and press send.
You will then receive a reply asking you to enter your full name. Once you send your name, your officers will receive notification and then you are all set to receive texts.
Please ignore the 3rd question where it asks if you are student or teacher since this software was mainly designed for schools so that teachers could reach their students and or parents of students quickly and easily.
We hope you like our new service. And as always, we welcome your feedback / questions Please help us spread the word and get your fellow crew signed up.
Your LEC Officers
