Metro NYC Environmental Meetup Update
The Metro NYC Environmental Meetup

1) New group Email policy
2) Upcoming MNYCEM Events
3) Council on Environment NYC (CENYC) is hiring!
4) Environmental Events and Happenings for August 3-August 17

Hi all,
It was recently brought to my attention how much email Meetup was automatically generating and sending to members. From now on you will only receive Meetup event announcement and one reminder for the event a day or two before the event. Meetup's automatic reminders have been sending out 4 plus emails for each event we post thus flooding your inboxes so I apologize for that.

MNYCEM Communications:
General Group Emails
Meetup event announcements and 1 reminder
Environmental Events and Happenings Newsletter once or twice a month
Message List Emails
Only emails that are relevant to the groups purpose and that foster discussion will be sent
over the message list-serv. All messages have to be approved my an organizer as it helps
prevent spam or specific questions going to everyone's inbox
To edit your email preferences, go to the top right of the screen and click"account", then
click the "membership and communications tab". You can choose to receive email from the
message list as they are posted, in a daily digest or not at all. Check the appropriate box
then scroll to the bottom to save your preferences.
Message Board
Read an interesting environmental article? Found a new green product? Need volunteers
for an eco event? Post anything related to the environment to the message board and feel
free to have as much discussion as you like. Please remember to be courteous to other
members and refrain from anything off topic. Further, enjoy yourselves but not at the
expense of other members
I try to post interesting environmentally related events and meetings to the calendar. Official
group Meetup events will have an RSVP option and a little red Meetup flag. Events without
a Meetup flag are just listed for your information. Feel free to post a message on the
message board to see if anyone else is interested in attending with you or if you'd like to
make it an official event send me a note. To find out more information about any event on
the calendar, click on the event and a text box will open with more details. If you have any
events you'd like posted, please send them to me.
