Technology is a wonderful thing, and has made communication to the masses possible faster and easier than ever before. OCM offers its thanks to Eryn Taylor and Mike Callicrate for their time, energy and expertise in reworking OCM’s website, www.competitivemarkets.com. The new site has much more capacity to allow our organization to publish news, information, photos and videos. It will be much faster to download articles and find information that is important to you. From a staffer’s standpoint, the website will be easier to maintain and update.
An exciting new item added to the website is the ability to accept dues, payments and donations online. In the past, OCM could only accept cash or checks, but with the new site, you will be able to use your credit or debit card with a safe and secure transaction!
OCM also has a page on FACEBOOK, which is a social networking site used around the world. If you currently use FACEBOOK, do a search for “competitive markets” and click on OCM’s page. Please “like” our page for current information about policy reforms, action alerts, and more. Feel free to issue invites to your friends to “like” our page too and help build a stronger coalition to fight for fair, open and transparent markets. If you don’t have a FACEBOOK page, it is easy to register for one. Remember, on FACEBOOK, you can adjust your settings to provide security for your page and limit what others can see about your personal information and postings.
In the future, look for OCM to utilize email more for distribution of our newsletter. We
believe we can accomplish a much wider reach through the use of the internet and are searching for ways to constantly improve our services and coordination. If you would like to receive our newsletter via email, please contact Pat Craycraft at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your email address with her. Reducing paper usage will help OCM continue operations in today’s economy.
Moving forward, we are EXCITED about the possibilities! Please visit our website and FACEBOOK page and let us know if there is something else you would like to see us adopt. Together, we can create awareness and change! AE
