    Very simple, no members can post or comment on it and the message gets posted here on the forum as it should.
    I like this idea.
    Announcements can now be listed on the home page, but an Announcement Sub Forum would give board members a quick and easy way to announce a new event or a change.

    We have the clubhouse section now. If any of the board members would like to post, they only need to get the information to a Moderator and we can post it in a closed thread......
    Perhaps a “sticky” with the title “From the Board” or “From the Home Office”.

    Anybody know where the rally will be on 2025? I will be 72 that year and would like to start planning my route now.

    2019 Rally promotion doesn't begin until the 2018 Rally Closing Ceremonies...same thing every year. Simple announcement followed by silence. See you at a rally somewhere.

    Unfortunately that process may take too long to satisfy some members.

    At first I thought the idea of making a sub forum available to board members like the admins or moderators use would be simple.
    The big snag with that, other members can not read a admin or moderator forum
    Nothing is ever simple.

    I can't think of a good way for board members to make announcements, then instantly lock the thread, unless you're willing to give all board members moderator powers.

    I'm fine with announcements being made on the home page as long as it's done in a timely manner.
    Not a big deal to me who wins the race to break the news.

    Chuck, I think that misses a point. It was not "announced" on the official web site. It was not "announced" on the MOA's own Forum. It was posted on Facebook and the first dozen or so responses didn't believe Tracy, until I pointed out she was a Board member and a reliable source who would be expected to know what was going on. Then Sue Rihn posted it to the Ambassadors page on Facebook. So I, a mere civilian since 2001 posted it to the MOA Forum. So to this moment it was not "announced" by MOA anywhere. Reece did confirm what I posted to the Forum but that is hardly an announcement to the membership.

    And let's be realistic. The deal was essentially done, ready to be ratified at the Board meeting. The "announcement" of this should have been in the can ready to go active on the Website and Forum right after the Board meeting. This is not rocket surgery.

    I am done forever with Facebook, and twitter etc. Selling information is enough. But proliferation of fake and false news, some is simply idiots, some is simply evil.

    We have an official web site. First post should always be here.

    All they would have to do with something urgent is to post in the Clubhouse section.
    This is all academic.....really. If “they” all didn’t get on board with this concept, chances are it would look rather goofy 🙃

    Technically speaking, the announcement, was first made to the membership in person at the board meeting. All members are welcome and were welcomed to attend. At the conclusion of the board meeting anyone in attendance that is not board or staff could post anything that was said in their social media of choice, including Lee who was in attendance.

    It seems appropriate for a board member to make a post as soon as practicable to get in front of the information in an official manner. The information was posted within the hour on our club’s two major social networks Facebook (for members and non members) and the forums (for members only).

    It will also be announced on the website in the minutes soon. It takes me about 20 man hours to produce the minutes and they have to be approved, you’ll see those in a month. The staff, probably Wes Fleming, will hang this and other information on the website when appropriate.


    Also released in open session; we added two new Getaway locations. One that I’m very excited about, as Rhonda and I may be able to host it in Destin Florida, the other in Pocono Pennsylvania.
