The Comms team's goal is to establish effective and efficient communication options (see below) and to support event conveners and others in their use of these options. This support can vary from backup technical advice through to training in how to use a channel through to, where appropriate, the actual work involved in using the channel.

A highlight of September was our Annual Charity Pairs fund raiser. There was an excellent turnout and a fun day was had by all. More than $2,800 was raised. Thank you to Sue Riley for the wonderful effort she put in on the organisational and catering front. Who could possible resist her profiteroles! We are grateful to Shirley Corbett for the exquisite hand- made quilt which she donated. It raised more than $200 - Sue Falkingham was the lucky winner.
We are hoping to reach $9,000 for the year’s fundraising, which includes money from the Charity evening plus money raised from plant and book sales. We appreciate Robin Hoey’s efforts in supplying the plants and thank those who help with the books. There will be some raffles at the Club -please buy some tickets to help us reach the $9,000 target.

This article guides event conveners (and other organizers) with the various communications options available to them.
As event convener you are assumed to have accepted overall responsibility for an event, from its design and budget, its promotion and marketing, through to its implementation and post-event wrap. The communications team aims to ensure you have access to efficient and effective communication channels to help you communicate your message. This may include channels you have not considered - check our full communication channel list.
You can use most of these communication channels directly, with support available as required. We will happily provide one-on-one training to you so that they can confidently use them. You will see that a small number of channels are however more effectively handled by the channel expert - simply provide the listed channel expert with your ready to use "copy" and, if relevant, photos.

Pianola provides a valuable targeted messaging tool - it allows an event convener or similar authorized person to send an email message to a targeted group of members and others on our Pianola database. It also allows for the printing and posting of mail messages for those without an email address.
The club wants authorized event conveners and others with a suitable communication need to use this tool on a self-service basis. Authorization involves giving your Pianola user id access to this functionality.
This article provides channel guidelines that should be followed and endeavors to provide some guidance and support to less experienced users. You should start with the Pianola support for how to send a message.

August has been a busy month on the Congress and competition front. Coffs Harbour was well attended and all had a good time. Well done to Peter Clarke and Hans Van Weeran (representing NSW) as well as Cassandra Mitchell and Clare Filmer Ramsay for a competing at the 2017 Australian Restricted Championships in Canberra. Congratulations to Cath Whiddon for winning the NSW State Individual Tournament. Well done to David Farmer and Viv Eldridge for winning the Charlie Mitchell Shield.
Most importantly, well done to everyone who has managed to avoid the awful winter flu!
On an organisational front, Robin Ho, our new administration assistant, is doing a wonderful job of helping with the finances and the membership process. The Committee has been getting ready for the transition to GST status, and I am happy to report that everything is in good order. A special thanks goes to Bob Whiddon and Max Patterson for all the work that they are doing behind the scenes.
