EISEF inaugurates a newsletter (August 26, 2015)

For years EISEF has posted announcements and information as news items on our web site. However, if you wanted to read these news items, you had to know about them and visit them on our web site from time to time. Now we’ve decided that more of you will read them if we send them to you — like in a newsletter.

Features of the EISEF newsletter:

  • We’ll send you the newsletter via e-mail, whenever a news item appears.
  • We won’t send you the newsletter unless you subscribe, except:
    • We’ll send our Last-Minute Information (just before the Fair) to all students and adult sponsors. (Example.)
    • We’ll send our Fair Summary (day after the Fair) to all students, adult sponsors, and judges. (Example.)
  • You can stop receiving the newsletter at any time by unsubscribing.
  • The news items are short and quick to read. They include links to details, if you’re interested.
  • We’ll send 8–12 items per year — we won’t clog your in-box. (Example: our 2014 news archive.)

Subscribe to the EISEF newsletter, and stay up-to-date on what we’re doing for you!
