WTS-Boston Wins the WTS International Chapter Circle of Excellence Award for Communications!


On May 22nd, during the WTS International Annual Meeting at the Annual Conference in Chicago, WTS-Boston was thrilled to be the recipient of the Chapter Circle of Excellence Award in Communications. In today’s technology driven world, it was becoming apparent that we needed to elevate the way we sent our members and non-members information about our chapter and events. In the last two years, through the help of our Communications Committee, WTS-Boston transformed the way we look and how we communicate information.

Some of these changes include:

  • Sending you a weekly Constant Contact E-Blast to over 1,000 subscribers. These e-blasts include a main event and three opportunities to showcase various chapter activities such as sponsor profiles, industry articles, job postings, programs and events, award nominations and highlights, among other newsworthy items.
  • Using social media to communicate on multiple platforms. We use Hootsuite, a management dashboard that allows us to schedule weekly updates via Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Our Twitter account (@WTS_Boston) currently has 360 followers and has shared over 1170 tweets including useful links and photographs. Our Facebook page (see WTS-Boston) is ‘liked’ by over 175 people and LinkedIn (see WTS-Boston) has 67 members and is growing.
  • Generating applicable membership surveys through the use of Survey Monkey to collect data and gain important feedback on our programs and initiatives.
  • Implementing DropBox to share files internally among our Chapter leadership and committees. As a volunteer organization with committee members from various firms, this is an invaluable tool to help us work more efficiently.
  • Adopting PayPal as our electronic system for payment. This is a convenient option for our attendees and can accept payment via credit cards or paypal accounts.

WTS-Boston is excited about this award and extends a big thank you and congratulations to the Communications Committee! Read more about the Communications Committee here.
