Dear Vintage Vehicle Members,
Your TVVV Board has taken the initiative to improve upon the way you receive Announcements via email. These Announcements may pertain to meetings, cruises, club events such as picnics, etc. The way it is currently done is someone on the Board owns the database of the membership’s email addresses and is responsible for adding, deleting, or modifying the email addresses of over 140 members (some households want email sent to 2 addresses). This is not only very time consuming, but leads to errors (bounced emails) that take additional time to figure out what is wrong with the address, correct, and resend. It is also not a very secure way of protecting your address.
The new method for sending Announcements is going to be through TellicoLife. Advantages of utilizing TellicoLife are:\
* Your email address will be much more secure using TellicoLife’s professional software and having it reside on secure servers in Atlanta versus having it reside on a member’s laptop.
* Members will be the “keeper” of their email address with the ability to add, delete, and modify your email address yourself.
* Using TellicoLife we will be able to broadcast an Announcement to all members with 1 push of a button.
* The TVVV Board will become less burdened with database management perhaps making serving on the Board more desirable as we are having trouble finding volunteers to participate in any of the positions.
If you are receiving this email it is because our database shows you as a paid member, but not in the TVVV CIRCLE in TellicoLife. We need you to be:
1. A member of TellicoLife and
2. A member of the TVVV Circle
You do not have to live in Tellico Village to be a member of TellicoLife or join the Vintage Vehicles Circle! You register the same as Villagers.
In order to help you in accomplishing the above two items, I have been named TVVV TellicoLife Coordinator and I’m here to assist you in becoming a member of TellicoLife and join our Circle. I’m ready to get going whenever you are!
Registering for TellicoLife – click on the link below and follow the directions.
Once you enter your email and click on REGISTER, you will automatically receive an email indicating you are registered. No human intervention is needed from a TellicoLife staff member.
Registering for Vintage Vehicle Circle
Sign-on to TellicoLife and scroll to the bottom of the home page. At the bottom of the page you will see the Vintage Vehicles icon. Click on the icon.
Next, you’ll see a gray box with the words Join Circle in it. Click the Request button and then click Yes when it asks you if you are sure.
Our Treasurer will receive your request, verify your membership status, and approve your request. That’s it – you’re in! Go back and look around the TVVV Circle and feel free to start a Discussion or upload pictures. You cannot send an Announcement; only specified Board members have this privilege.
Do this for everyone in your household that wants to receive Announcements from the Board and have fun in the Vintage Vehicles’ Circle.
To add or modify your email address: Click on Profile in upper right corner of your screen, then My Profile and scroll down until you see the EDIT button. You now have the ability (and responsibility) to maintain your email address.
Do not be afraid to reach out and ask for help. This is why I’m being paid the BIG bucks! Send me an email or give a call and we will set up a time for both of us to be on our computers simultaneously and work through this process together.
At some point down the road, you will stop receiving Announcements from the club if you are not in our Circle.
