This is the first of what will be ongoing member updates in the newsletter “What’s Happening at the Memorial Society”.
Since our last annual meeting, your Board of Directors has been diligently working on your behalf. Committees have been formed to address some major areas of concern namely “How can we increase our membership?”; “What can we do to enhance membership benefits?”and “How can we best serve the society?”.
Please give our enhanced website www.msedmonton.com a look. We believe you will find it user friendly and informative. On it, we have endeavoured to include items of interest and schedules of Society sponsored events. We are pleased to report a noticeable increase in the number of people using our website to seek information about the Society and hope this increased interest will result in new memberships.
We have also initiated a series of Society sponsored information sessions on topics of interest and importance to you our members. The first two on “Wills and Estates” were well received by those in attendance. We are thankful for the assistance of several of our Funeral Home partners, outside agencies and the professional and financial sectors which will allow us to expand the number and content of these sessions in the new year. Should you have a topic you would like to have discussed please notify our office and we will try to accommodate your request. Check our website for updates, plan to attend a session and bring family, friends or neighbours.
WHAT DO WE ASK OF YOU?
- You are our best advocate. Encourage those near and dear to you to become a Memorial Society member.
- As postage is the society’s second highest expenditure we will be contacting members primarily by email. If you are aware of members who have not advised us of an email address please have them do so or, for those who don’t have email, please pass along our messages to them.
- Finances remain critical to our society. Even a small donation of five dollars helps.
- Consider giving our society the donation of your time and talent. We are seeking members to serve on our Board of Directors.
Last but certainly not least your Board of Directors extend to you our sincere best wishes for
