CVEA Transitions From Ruralite Magazine to a Monthly Email Newsletter in 2024
Glennallen, AK – CVEA is excited to announce that the Cooperative is embracing a new era of communication. In line with the Co-op’s commitment to deliver timely and relevant information, CVEA has decided to shift from distributing the traditional printed Ruralite Magazine each month to a more affordable, flexible, and sustainable digital newsletter format. Behind the Switch - A Newsletter Edition will launch via email in January 2024.
The move from Ruralite Magazine to a digital format was contemplated after 2021 Member Survey results indicated only 30% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the magazine is a useful communication tool. Conversely, 66% agreed or strongly agreed that email is the most useful way to communicate non-outage information to members.
Through this new approach, CVEA hopes to foster stronger, more transparent communications, made easier and more accessible for Co-op members. According to CVEA CEO, Jaime Matthews, “Going digital will allow CVEA to provide members with more timely and meaningful updates. Overall, the change will provide efficiencies, cost savings, and less paper waste.”
Each month, the digital newsletter will be emailed directly to the member inbox CVEA has on file. To ensure you don’t miss the latest news and information, please make sure your email address is current in CVEA records. To update information, members can call 907-822-3211 in the Copper Basin, 907-835-4301 in Valdez, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. SmartHub users can update their information using their SmartHub account.
The monthly newsletter will also be linked each month on CVEA’s official Facebook page and posted at cvea.org.
CVEA is dedicated to ensuring members are well informed and engaged. If you have questions or feedback regarding the new format or the reasons behind the change, please email Sharon Scheidt, Director of Communications, at email@example.com.
The Co-op looks forward to strengthening connections with members through this exciting new communication effort.
