HOD Club Officers for 2019

Appointed Positions

From Your HOD Newsletter Editor

Beginning in April the club will be publishing a quarterly newsletter. This will be for and about Heart O' Dixie members. To read more about the plans for the newsletters go to "Articles", "Newsletters".

Thanks,
Scott Witt, HOD Newsletter Editor

From Your Social Media Chairperson

Many times we want to reach out to a fellow member but have no contact information. PCA restricts club officers from dissiminating member information. The club has created a "Social Media" database just for this purpose.

Our Social Media database is strictly voluntary and is available only to those members who choose to participate. It is based on "Google Docs" and is secure from being accessed by the general public.

We welcome any and all to participate if you want to be able to contact other members. We emphasize, it's voluntary and the data is available only to participating members

Thanks,
Suzanne Fowler, HOD Social Media Chairperson

From Your Webmaster

We plan to provide an up-to-date calendar for all HOD events and some out-of-region activities. The “Home” page will provide a two month calendar of our regular events and the “Calendar” page will show all future planned events.

So this will be the place to come to see what our officers have in store for HOD activities.

We welcome any and all to provide suggestions as to what you want to see on “your” website. Suggestions and/or comments can be sent to hodpca@gmail.com.
