New Groupme App

During our annual meeting last January, we discussed the need to bring clear, accurate, and timely communication to the membership regarding the scheduling and details of upcoming events. We have, and will continue to utilize the JMRC email list, however, it is not necessarily timely and important information can get difficult to find in embedded messages.

The BOD has successfully tested a new communication channel that provides quick communication in a group chat with client support on Apple IOS and Android devices as well as a web portal. You can even use SMS texting. The product is called groupme which was recently purchased by Skype and is free for use. If you have used Skype then groupme will be familiar to you. For more information please check out their website, https://groupme.com/en-US/

Below is the invitation link to the JMRC Notification chat in groupme. The BOD will use this chat to send event/launch information and important changes and updates. Members should restrict their comments in the notification chat to events and launches. General discussion should remain on the Yahoo email list. When you click on the invitation you will be asked to login or create an account. Once you created an account you can set your preferences and will be entered into the chat. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please reply to this email.

We hope you find this useful.
