In an effort to go green, the WCC has decided to begin phasing out the print version of the Wedgwood Echo newsletter over the next several months. This decision was not taken lightly for the WCC trustees to reach as the Echo has been in print form for over 20 years. However, we believe that this is the best decision for the WCC and the community as this website, the Facebook page, Twitter feed, and email listserves appear to be effectively reaching and informing the community. Meanwhile, the costs to WCC to print and mail in its current format diminishes the WCC’s ability to address the community’s priorities.
In its current format, the WCC is a 12-or-so page printed newsletter that’s mailed every 2 months to WCC members only with extras placed at local coffee shops. Past Echos are then posted on this website on the online Archive. The Echo requires a significant amount of resources in both time and money to complete and yet only reaches a limited number of Wedgwoodians. Not only does is this phase out a greener solution, but we believe we can be more effective at communicating with the neighborhood. So, in May 2012 we will mail out our final full Echo. After this, we will transition the Echo into an online newsletter that anyone can sign up for. In fact, you can sign up for it below or on our Listserves page and get the Echo in your sent directly to your Inbox.
