Notices to the Network
THE BAATN EMAIL NEWSLETTER
The BAATN newsletter has been running successfully for many years now and has been received well by all our members and subscribers over the years as a really useful resource cataloguing events, training, jobs, supervision and much more relating to items specifically around Black, African, Asian or Caribbean therapeutic issues and themes.
Over the last 15 months, interest in BAATN and the work we do is ever-growing, with membership, subscribers and members of the public seeking support increasing more than ever. As a result of the above, we have made a few changes to our newsletter due to the increase in advert requests, which will provide everyone with further opportunity to advertise to the network. Changes are as follows;
1. The newsletter will now run fortnightly, replacing the current 2nd and 4th Monday of the Month. Each newsletter will have the upcoming date for the next newsletter, keeping you well informed.
2. There will be a limit on repeat adverts to twice each month to ensure that everyone gets a fair, equal chance to gain advertisement space and interest.
3. Section headers have been added to the newsletter, making it clearer for you to scroll through and find what you’re looking for
4. And finally, not a new change but relatively new, we have introduced a word limit of 180 words to again ensure everyone gets a fair and equal chance to advertisement space and interest.
If you have any queries, questions or feedback regarding the above changes, please do get in touch with me (Sam) BAATN administrator on: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, we hope these changes will be welcomed by you all and facilitate an even better production of the eagerly anticipated BAATN newsletter.
