Calling all Elves!

We could use some help with bringing in local donations for our Annual Holiday Auction in December, which helps benefit our scholarship programs throughout the year for our chapter.

Please see the template letter below and feel free to download and send it out to at least 10 local area businesses.

Help spread the holiday cheer and make our Auction one of the best we’ve had! (To request the original Word template document, please contact the Puget Sound Chapter board and we will be happy to provide it.)

Thank you!

Pinterest! Interested?

Those of you who attended our September 2017 program learned how Pinterest can be an important tool for agencies and groups (like ARMA chapters) to connect with existing audience and reach out to new groups and potential members or customers.

ARMA Puget Sound Chapter Board members Karen Hague, Audrey Houston, and Susan Haigh just set up a Pinterest account for our own chapter, where we will post things like tools and tips, ARMA events, and ‘RIM-shots’ of humor, just for fun!

Check it out, share a pin or two, try out this newfangled (to most of us) tool, and help spread the word about ARMA and the Puget Sound Chapter!
