Jerry researched cost and information about a company that will publish a newsletter for us. Cost varies based on whether it is digital only, or printed. ($9 to $11) per member per year. For UBSCC it would be about $1100 per year. Katie C. mentioned that we would need to work that into our budget; like a fundraiser or something. Jerry shared a published version of the newsletter, which appears to have many clubs’ letters compiled into one publication. He will do more research.
