Newsletters

 

The VIP Club generates periodic newsletters to keep members informed. Six issues are planned for 2017; Jan/Feb, Mar/Apr, etc. Typical newsletter contents are:

  • Details of upcoming programs including registration forms and venue directions,
  • Social Activity reports about previous events with occasional snapshots,
  • Legacy Activity reports, i.e. tidbits about our people, projects, and product history going back to ERA in 1946,
  • Obits, new member listings, and letters to the editor (if any), and
  • Boiler plate; i.e. contact data, periodic groups information, and the Lighter Side :-)

Address changes for mailings and e-mailings are due to the Membership committee by the Wednesday of each Board meeting, i.e. first Wednesday of the month. Inputs for the next Newsletter issue are due to the Editor by the first Friday following the first Wednesday of each month. Please let us know if you move or have something to share with our membership.

Since 2010, our standard newsletter distribution is via electronic availability notifications. Members without email addresses will receive a mailed copy a few days after the electronic notices. We begin the electronic notices when the news file is sent to the print shop. Members with email may opt out of electronic deliveries and he/she will receive only the paper copy. If a member and spouse have independent email URLs, and both retired from a heritage company - inform us and we'll send the newsletter available to both of you. 

You will need the latest pdf reader to open the electronic newsletters, click this Adobe icon to download and install onto your computer. To request notification when a new newsletter is available (members & nonagenarians), please send an e-mail to us. [86% of our members have email addresses.] 

Important! For electronic delivery, put newsletter@vipclubmn.org into your email reader accept list and vipclubmn.org into your ISP's trusted URLs list so that your spam blocker will receive the Bcc newsletter distribution notices. Subject line of the distribution notice includes your membership 'paid thru' year.

Unisys Blue Bell Retirees Group

Sadly, the UBBRG dissolved at the end of 2016 because of diminished of volunteer leadership, i.e. board members were passing away and no one was willing to take his/her place. They had shared some of their newsletters with us. We have archived the following Blue Bell retirees' club NEWSBITS: December 2016, September 2016, June 2016, March 2016, December 2015, September 2015, June 2015, December 2013, September 2013, June 2013, March 2013, September 2011, and December 2010.
