Does using the NLGL Service create additional work load for group volunteers?
Depending on how a group chooses to use the NLGL Service, there could be a increase or reduction in volunteer effort needed compared to not using the service. NLGL Service provides group members with 24hr/ 7 day access to the date event diary which the group may wish to keep continuously up to date. Features that should minimise administrative effort include • the NLGL event diary produces reports on the screen that can be ‘cut-and-pasted’ into Word so that the paper events diary does not need retyping. • several people can work on the events diary simultaneously on their own home computer to help share the work load • depending on how a group wishes to use NLGL Service, on the screen address lists and email addressed be produced, say to be cut-and-pasted into Word to print envelop labels. The lists can be tailored to select just paid up members, members with subscriptions falling due, member who have requested a paper event diary etc.
