Establishing Club Email Addresses

 

The Event Operations department uses email for automated communication with clubs.  We encounter situations where the email addresses for club officers are not up-to-date or email inboxes are not adequately monitored.  This can prevent clubs from receiving information from the AKC in a timely manner.   Many clubs are establishing “club” email addresses.  For instance, the Gulf County Kennel Club may establish email address such as GulfCoKC-President@isp.com, GulfCoKC-Secretary@isp.com, GulfCoKC-ShowChair@isp.com, etc.

Clubs can use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo!, or a number of other email hosts for free email.  This provides for consistent contact information for clubs, allows multiple people to monitor email activity, and provides club officials a way to protect the publishing of their personal email addresses.  We encourage clubs to consider establishing these types of email addresses for their club email communication.
