# 1 Beginning with the June 18, 2021 Newsletter, the submission DEADLINE for item inclusion is noon the preceding Friday.
There are a variety of circumstances that prompt this change: an all-volunteer newsletter team; growing variability in publication readiness of submissions; incorporation of online links in items and the event schedule; and the need to better attend to privacy.
# 2 Since February 2021, we have adopted several measures to protect our congregant’s privacy:
- The Congregation Emanu-El Newsletter is no longer published on Facebook or Twitter.
- The Congregation Emanu-El Newsletter will not publish the pictures of individuals, who are neither “public figures” nor have a Facebook page, without their express consent.
- The Congregation Emanu-El Newsletter will not publish an individual’s phone number or personal email address without express consent.
This means that you may receive a request for CONSENT to publish your personal data that was/will be included in a newsletter item. If so, please respond promptly as we are working against a deadline.
#3 To help those who have forgotten, and those who may never have known, how to submit an item to the newsletter, here’s a link to this information.
#4 We have a temporary online newsletter editor joining us in July, so it is important that our processes efficiently include that person.
We need to be able to move in a step-wise fashion from the receipt of content through to its publication.
