Online Communications & Accounts

• Account Login information for the following accounts is on the Board Folder on Google Drive
• Mailchimp, GoDaddy, Gmail, Instagram, Square*, Xero*


• We have an email
• We have emails for @meetings @students @communications @memberships @leadership @board
• Board members can update who gets what of those emails on our Go Daddy account
• When you reply to an info@email, be sure to include it in your response


• Anyone on Springfield Creatives board or committees is encouraged to use Slack for regular communication. Committee chairs may need to train new committee members who are unfamiliar with Slack on how to use, and if you know they don’t use it regularly, maybe look with them about making sure they at least get an email notification when they are mentioned, so they can get a link to the conversation and follow.
• If a message concerns a whole committees, type it in their channel
• If a message is for a specific person and may not concern a whole channel, direct message them instead
• Use #leadership and the secret #board channels for group organizational things.
• Save @channel notifications for times when you really need everyone to review your important message really soon. It is disabled in the #general channel.
• To set reminders for your committee, type “/remind #committee” (or @person) followed by what you want to remind them of and when.
• We now have integrations on #calendar and #info-email

Google Drive

• There is one main Springfield Creatives folder on Google Drive that has all committee information within.
• There is a board folder that should only be shared with current (and past?) board members that has financials and sponsorship info
• Committees should keep as many documents as possible organized on Drive, and link to them in Slack, so that we retain all info and can look back after the committee has turned over to the next year
