We’re getting better at this! Latest membership mailing

By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, WBJC News | No Comments

Each mailing we send, we get a little better at this! Last major mailing we sent out, we inadvertently chose “person record” rather than “account record” and sent two mailings to many two-member households.
