Sertoma News Service 4/12/2010
Its Free for the Asking!!
The Board has approved a new club services program (catchy name still to be determined). A full description of the purpose and structure is found on the web site.
In short, during the year Sertoma will provide six to nine 15 -20 minute presentations for clubs to use during club meetings or other club functions. These presentations will include training on club management, mission activities, fundraising, and other Sertoma updates. Presentations will be given by a Club Liaison trained by Sertoma through either a live webinar, or a recording of the webinar.
All your club needs is to have a member agree to be the Club Liaison. The webinars are free to the Club Liaison, as are the presentation/training materials shared with the club. In addition, through your club liaison, you have a direct link to request training and or information on topics of specific interest to your club.
Watch for more information in the coming months on how to register for this program. Don’t let your club miss out on this new service – identify your Club Liaison now !!
