From Our President & CEO | cdc monthly - January 2018
I am so proud to share the newly-designed CDC Monthly e-news with all of you. I believe that you will find this to be a convenient and effective tool for sharing information about all things CDC of Tampa.
It has been a long time in the making. Our team thought hard about how we could better connect with you, and we looked to our peers around the nation, to learn what best practices they're using to stay connected to the people and places that are important to them.
Each time we revisited this subject, though, we came back to the same, overarching idea: now is the time for us to build a new online platform that brings as many people as possible into contact with the work we do, the people we serve and our vision for the future.
For 25 years, CDC of Tampa has done amazing work--creating economic opportunities for Tampa's people and communities. During my time as CEO, I've often been told that while its obvious we do great things, we don't always "tell our story" as well as we could. CDC Monthly and the online platform it links to are about to change that for the better.
Our e-news will arrive every month with bite-size updates to keep you in the know by sharing important news, upcoming events, program services, client successes, helpful tips and much more. At the same time, CDC Monthly is designed to quickly connect you to our brand new weblog--which will offer additional updates in real time, and invite you to help us spread the word across the community as you see fit.
Most importantly, we will utilize our new e-news and blog to continually share just how much you mean to us! Whether you are a supporter, partner, client or a passionate community member, we pledge to produce content that shows you how much we value the part you play in helping us build more prosperous futures for Tampa's people and communities.
I hope you enjoy this edition of CDC Monthly. And, thank you for being a special part of our CDC of Tampa family!
