North Carolina Museum Folks,
Included: New email address for your NCMC Newsletter contributions
The NCMC Newsletter is published quarterly by and for members of the North Carolina Museums Council. News of general interest to the museum community is actively solicited. We create a full color version of the newsletter that will be posted on our website for continual access. Members and non-members who are on our "news announce" opt-in e-mail list will receive an e-mail notice when each quarterly issue is posted on the website. If you are interested in receiving these announments please join the newannounce e-mail list.
We hope everyone has been enjoying the recent issues of Muse.News, the Council’s newsletter posted & available on the NCMC website.
Muse.News content is primarily directed towards industry professionals, community volunteers, and immediate stakeholders. Along that theme, we want to encourage you to send us announcements, press releases, and articles that focus on personnel, practices, projects, and opportunities, i.e. “News”. (What, Who, & How).
We are tweaking the “Events, Announcements, and Exhibits” section of the Newsletter. If you would like to submit contributions that are “marketing / calendar-in-nature”, please do so only once per quarter. Regular exhibit & activity Press Releases, Calendars of Events, and similar marketing information intended for your organization’s audience should not be forwarded to the Newsletter. A more appropriate place for this type of communication continues to be email@example.com for inclusion in the weekly “NCMC Events From Around the State”.
However, Muse.News really needs your news and input. If you have suggestions for regular features that would both interest and benefit our readers, please let us know. Your relevant contributions (and ideas) will ensure information that is current, instructional, and exciting will reach your peers throughout the state.
The new email address for Muse.News contributions is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please change this in your address list as you review your organization’s submissions.
For reference, the Newsletter publication & submission criteria are include below.
Thanks & we look forward to hearing from you –
Membership, business-related mailings and change-of-address should be directed to the NCMC Membership chair person.
