Signup To Receive Text Messages

Copy of imagesCAG27CNX As a result of new telecommunications rules that went into effect on October 16, 2013, member signup is now required to receive text messages and many members (including Federation Officials) may no longer receive important text message notifications and updates about Federation events, activities ,etc. that were previously received.

Email deliverability is currently only about 18% these days due to personal spam filters, failure to update emails with Headquarters, etc.  That means even if you WANT to receive emails, only 18 of 100 are reported as being received and opened by the intended recipient. You may be in the dark about important matters and not even know it.

Text message deliverability currently remains over 90% and many times you may receive a short text message advising you to check your email for an important message from the Federation. The text message notification can help assure that you receive important information in a timely manner in case the email gets diverted into a spam filet or in the event you may not check your email very often.

Federation Officials and other members with multiple roles and responsibilities may need to text various keywords related to your roles or positions in order to continue receiving messages for those roles or positions.

Refer to the text message keyword list below for additional distribution lists that you may need to signup for in order to continue receiving messages related to a role, responsibility, event, project, etc. associated with the listed keywords.
