Newsletters, website page 5

The VIP Club generates periodic newsletters to keep members informed. Since 2010, our standard newsletter distribution is via electronic availability notifications. Six issues are planned for 2022; Jan/Feb, Mar/Apr, etc. Typical newsletter contents are:

  • Details of upcoming events/programs including registration forms and venue directions.
  • Social Activity reports about recent events with occasional snapshots.
  • Obits, new member listings, and letters to the editor [if any]. Our Legacy deceased chapter has year-by-year summary lists of obits that have been in prior newsletters, click here
  • Legacy Activity reports, i.e. tidbits about our people, projects, and product history going back to ERA in 1946.
  • Boiler plate; i.e. contact data, periodic groups' information, and
  • The Lighter Side if space is available. [:-)

Address changes for mailings and e-mailings are due to the Membership committee by the 1st Wednesday of each month. Inputs for the next Newsletter issue are due to the Editor by the first Friday following the first Wednesday of each even numbered month. We also use this membership database for evites. We do not post our database on-line to avoid phishing by others.

 Notes: We begin the electronic distribution when the news file is sent to the print shop.  To change from US Mail delivery to electronic distribution, please contact membership database director, membership@vipclubmn.org.
Members without email addresses will receive a mailed copy a few days after the electronic notices.  Members with email addresses 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/legacy company - inform us and we'll send the newsletter available message to both of you.    

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

Associated Organizations

Charles Babbage Institute

The latest Charles Babbage Institute newsletter is available.  The CBI Director holds the Engineering Research Associates Land Grant Chair for the History of Technology. 

Unisys Blue Bell Retirees Group (UBBRG)

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. Note that a few of their former board members are VIP Club members.
