Form, format, makeup, layout, art work, and frequency of publication are all important aspects of communicating with your chapter's members through regularly issued bulletins and newsletters. Nothing, however, is more important than communication itself. Naturally, it would be ideal if each one of our chapters was able to print a regular, full color magazine of the same quality as the National Society's S.A.R. Magazine. Such is not possible.
It is possible, however, to communicate. A letter or one sheet bulletin photocopied on both sides is far, far better than no news at all. No news is not good news. No news is just that - - nothing.
Communication is a vital key to every other aspect of the SAR and is absolutely necessary if we are to reach the goals we have set for ourselves and live up to the principles for which we stand.
