CT EAPA BLOG UPDATE
Hello CT EAPA members,
I welcome you to our first CT EAPA blog post. You should be receiving this because of your membership in the Connecticut Chapter of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association.
Our hope is that you and other CT EAPA members will use the blog to share important EAP related information with other chapter members between our regularly scheduled monthly meetings. I believe it’s important to keep the information shared relevant to the EAP field in general. We can also share chapter members’ joys and concerns, much as we do in our monthly meetings.
In order to protect the integrity of our website and blog, the blog has been set up in such a way that people wishing to sign up for it can do so right from the website (www.cteapa.com click on far right “Blog”) but they are placed in a pending status until I approve them. Because you are receiving this, you are already signed up so, PLEASE, do NOT sign up again. Also, you can post to the blog as you believe appropriate. However the webmaster has recommended, and I agreed, that blog posts will be reviewed for appropriateness before they are published. For now, I am the lucky one! 🙂 One other note is that, once approved, posts to the blog will be sent out seven days a week but only at 12 noon. This is a function of the programs that we are using in order to keep the costs down.
For those interested in the more technical aspects, Carol, our webmaster has been working with me and we are using a WordPress blog and are maintaining our address list with MailChimp.
If you have any difficulties with receiving, posting to, or any other issues with the blog, please contact me by separate email to: firstname.lastname@example.org If I am unable to help you I will contact Carol and see if we can get the issue resolved.
One last issue for now – please be sure to sign your blog post, okay?
Peace, John (aka John Pacheco, 203-375-5782 vm 2)
