Group Communication and Forums

Tue, May 31, 2022 12:59 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

After reading this article, please take a few minutes to log in to Wild Apricot to update your group participation and subscribe to group forums. We may have added new groups and forums since you last updated your profile.   

Your group participation settings control, for the most part, which emails you receive from CLSA. If you subscribe to a group, you will receive event invites to sailing, education, and volunteer opportunities. Subscribing to a group also allows you to post and reply to topics in group-specific forums.  

If you subscribe to a forum, you will receive notifications when someone posts or replies to any topic in that forum. You can further update your communication preference for that forum to receive notifications immediately or in digest form daily or weekly. You may also subscribe to any individual topic in any forum and select your notification preferences for that particular topic.   

If you do nothing, we still have you covered. Our club communication director will send periodic summary emails to all members that highlight upcoming events, announcements, forum activity, and classifieds activity. We will also send invites to all members for banquets and major social events. Our calendar is always accessible on our website with convenient signup links.   

Wild Apricot is a powerful tool that allows members more control over your email inbox preferences. This is a new system, so we’re going overboard to get everyone on board. Spending a few minutes to get oriented will help ensure you receive communications that are relevant to you.
