Thank you for registering this program. There are several important notes need your intention as well as cooperation to make a better SNT program for all to workout.

Attendance Policy:
To optimize spot utilization, participants are required to inform monitors when they are absent at least one week before the scheduled class, allowing time to fill the vacant spot using the waitlist. Failure to notify monitors of upcoming absences twice will result in removal from your assigned spot and placement at the bottom of the waitlist. Any absence notification after the start of the class on a Monday is considered unnotified and will count toward the two grace absences. Each unnotified absence will be evaluated individually.

Winter Months and Class Cancellations:
During winter, please check the School Bus Cancellation Notice link on the Home Page. If York Region school buses are canceled, all Shape and Tone classes are also canceled.

Inclement Weather Protocol:
Participants are suggested to check SNT WhatsApp group chat in the Monday mornings in case there is a last-minute cancellation, especially during inclement weather. Never enter AR1 with wet or snowy shoes, as this poses a slipping hazard on the wet floor.

Weights Safety Guidelines:
For safety reasons, please refrain from placing weights or dumbbells on the floor at any time. Your cooperation in maintaining a safe workout environment is appreciated.

Fall 2023 Results for Shape and Tone Registration
posted 2023-09-09 07:33 by Kirk McDonald

Click the attachment below to show the Fall 2023 Shape and Tone Registration Results.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
There were over 200 registrants for the Fall Shape and Tone program. To ensure no vacant spot is wasted participants must notify monitors of upcoming absences. Failure to notify monitors of upcoming absences for 2 times will result in removal from your assigned spot and you will be placed at the bottom of the wait list. Monitors should be notified, where feasible, at least 1 week before the class. This will allow time to fill the vacant spot using the wait list. Notification of an absence after the start of the class on any Monday is considered an unnotified absence and will be counted toward the 2 grace absences. Each unnotified absence will be judged on its own merit.

During winter months participants are reminded to check the School Bus Cancellation Notice link on the Home Page. When School Buses are cancelled all Shape and Tone classes are also cancelled.

During inclement weather members are reminded to not enter AR1 with wet or snowy shoes. This represents a slipping hazard on a wet floor.

Clarification regarding Directed Proxy Forms
posted 2022-10-22 13:03 by Kirk McDonald

There appears to be some misunderstanding on how a Directed Proxy form is used. A member can only complete ONE Directed Proxy. The Directed Proxy indicates all candidates and which position they are running for. Members CANNOT complete an individual Directed Proxy for each position.

On Election Night, October 30, 2022 when a Directed Proxy holder appears they will be verified that they are entitled to vote. The Directed proxy/proxies they hold will also be verified that they are legitimate and then the holder will be given a ballot for that Directed Proxy. Should another member show up with a second Directed Proxy for a member that has already been presented, that proxy will be confiscated and NO ballot will be given to the holder of this duplicate Directed Proxy.

It is contingent on the member filling out the Directed Proxy that they only complete one.

Should a member already have given their Directed Proxy to another member and want that Directed Proxy returned to them the holder MUST return that Directed Proxy to the original member filling it out.

If a Directed Proxy is presented and has errors in the completion no ballot will be given to the holder. One error will invalidate the entire Directed Proxy. Errors can be 1) Incorrect names for candidate positions, THIS INCLUDES SPELLING ERRORS OF CANDIDATES NAMES 2) Missing signature, 3) Names not printed where indicated, 4) Date missing, 5) Member's name or number missing, 5) Directed Proxy holder's name or number missing.

If a member is out of town and wishes to complete a Directed Proxy they can either take a picture or scan the document and send to their designated holder. The holder must have a printed paper Directed Proxy to present when entering AR1. Alterations to the printed Directed Proxy form will be examined and may result in disqualification. Members that are in town are expected to be able to give their original Directed Proxy to their holder and not resort to an electronic method.

Further questions should be directed to

Notice from City regarding construction around Angus Glen Community Centre
posted 2022-10-11 19:24 by Kirk McDonald

Please note that there are construction projects occurring on the Angus Glen property, resulting in the following alternative accesses to the facility:

1. The west entrance to the facility remains closed for replacement of the exterior walkway. The south entrance remains open for customers who park on the west side of the facility or take public transit. We recommend that arena users enter the facility through the north or south entrances as they are the most accessible for the arena.

2. A portion of the ring road on the east side of the building will be closed for sewer construction as of Monday, October 17th which affects the following:

a. Bus routes have been re-routed through the parking lots on the west side. Please note that there will be parking spot closures to accommodate this new route. Additional parking is available on the north side of the facility next to the park and customers can enter through the north entrance to the facility.

b. Parking lots on the east side of the facility are still accessible however, customers will have to drive through the lots instead of on the ring road. Please use extra caution driving and walking.

Please allow for time to navigate through the parking lot when attending your programs. Both projects are estimated to complete by mid-end of November 2022.

City of Markham Notice Re: Modified Step 2 Effective January 5, 2022
posted 2022-01-04 21:43 by Kirk McDonald

Hi All,

The attachment will give detailed information. You may also paste the link below into your browser.

All Community Centres are closed for at least 21 days commencing 12:01 am Wednesday, January 5, 2022. AGOAC Virtual programs are not affected. As more updated information becomes available members will be advised.

And my final comment: The best defense is a good offense. If you haven't received or scheduled your booster dose, now is the time. I know it can be frustrating at times trying to navigate the booking systems that are offering the boosters, but keep at it and your patience will be rewarded. Don't just try the Provincial booking site. Get yourselves on the waitlists for different pharmacies.

As you may have heard on the news lately the province is mandating that your proof of vaccination will only be by showing a personalized QR code. This will become effective sometime in January 2022 and will also be required to enter City of Markham facilities for any AGOAC programs. Any current non QR code documents that you currently use either on your phone or a hard copy printout will no longer be accepted.

To get your QR code use the link below by either pasting in your browser or clicking the Attachment

https://covid-19.ontario.ca/get-proof/

This will bring you to the provincial website. You will need your Green photo Health card. For those without a Green photo Health card there are further instructions on the website.

The process is very simple and should only take a few minutes.

If you already have a QR code then you are okay. If you need to get the QR code do not delay.

When entering a City of Markham facility you can either show a printed copy of the QR code for scanning or you can also show the QR code on your phone.

2020-2021 Charitable Work by Craft Group
posted 2021-09-05 10:47 by Angela Wong

The Annual Craft Sale organized by the Craft Group had been put on hold since 2020 due to the pandemic. However, it did not stop the group from doing charitable work. Last year, the group participated in the 1000 masks and contributed half of the total masks donated by senTV to Michael Garron Hospital.

In addition, the group participated in the Izzy Dolls project. In August 2021, after a long lockdown and when Ontario went into Step 3, 126 dolls and 45 baby hats were delivered to Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC), a charitable organization with a mission to increase access to medicine and improve health in vulnerable communities. The attached link is the letter from HPIC in appreciation of the group’s efforts.

More information about the Izzy dolls project can be found in the following 2 videos on senTV Channel on YouTube.

Shape and Tone - Outdoor - Civic Holiday Cancellation
posted 2021-07-30 15:56 by Kirk McDonald

The Monday, August 2, 2021 Shape and Tone Outdoor class is cancelled account Civic Holiday.



Update - Indoor Programs
posted 2021-07-21 00:59 by Kirk McDonald

As you are aware the province has implemented Stage 3 re-opening. I know how anxious members are to resume their indoor programs. While the provincial move is a step in the right direction, we are under the umbrella of the City of Markham and it is their guidance that dictates our next moves.

The last information I have is everything is still closed until August 31, 2021 as far as indoor programs are concerned. However, this is fluid and could change at any time. When there is an update the City will notify me and I will notify members. What has been mentioned is when indoor programs restart social distancing protocols will be put in place. For some of the more popular programs that may mean a very limited attendance. It may also mean that drop in programs, as we know them, may be subject to registration. This will be something that will have to be ironed out once we have more finite information from the City.
It is coming up on a year and a half since we last interacted with our friends. But the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel and we just need a little bit more patience. Get outside and enjoy the warm weather while you can.

Update information from City of Markham
posted 2021-04-28 01:28 by Kirk McDonald

The following has been received from the City of Markham affecting Club activities.

Dear Community Users,

On April 8th, the Province of Ontario announced a provincial wide lockdown for a period of 28 days. This was recently extended for an additional 2 weeks, taking the lockdown period to May 20, 2021. The lockdown resulted in a closure of Markham recreation facilities and in-person programs.

Throughout the COVID–19 Pandemic, the City of Markham has taken a cautious approach to opening facilities and services. We understand the value of keeping our community active; however, we continue to balance this with keeping our staff and the community safe.

Given the uncertainty of when we will be able to reopen and the anticipated restrictions that will still be in place, a decision has been made to keep all indoor Recreation Community Centres closed for the summer including arenas, pools, gymnasiums and fitness centres. The Markham Pan Am Centre, if provincial legislation permits, will re-open for training high-performance athletes.

Recreation Services will continue to provide virtual fitness and programs.

Summer Services will be focused on outdoor activities:

• Morgan Outdoor Pool will be open from June-September for lane swim, aquafit, lessons and rec swim.

• Pop Up in the Park Program (PUPP) which provides a 1.5 hour programs in local parks for children age 6 – 12. This is a pre-registered program. Further details will be available regarding location and registration mid-May.

• Outdoor programs
• Fitness in the Park

We thank you for your continued patience during this difficult time and look forward to connecting with you as we plan for future seasons.

NEW! Seniors Online Project
posted 2021-04-09 09:08 by Thomas Yee

We are pleased to announce that AGOAC has applied for and been granted $25,000 in funding from the Government of Canada’s "New Horizons for Seniors Program" to initiate the new Seniors Online Project.

This project and grant proposal was put together by members of AGOAC’s Filmmaking Group. They worked tirelessly over the last several months to create the now approved proposal and to prepare for the launching of the Seniors Online Project. This will run for a year, from April 2021 to March 2022.

The Seniors Online Project offers weekly, virtual get-together activities to help reduce isolation, improve the quality of life of seniors and help them to maintain a social support network during and beyond the pandemic. These weekly, virtual, activities through Zoom include entertainment, handicrafts, fitness & exercise, and social & lifestyle connections with the aim of helping seniors to stay connected with their community through social participation and interaction.

The New Horizons for Seniors grant allows us to offer our Seniors Online programs to all AGOAC members as well as other seniors, newcomers and visible minorities within our community. A link with more details can be found on the AGOAC website at www.agoac.ca

為了符合 New Horizons for Seniors Program 對這項目的要求,和 Covid19 疫症的指引,Seniors Online 每星期會提供最少三次的活動。這些活動會用 Zoom 平台在網上進行。大家需要預先報名。如果申請被接受,我們會用電郵通知大家。

計劃的活動包括:

1. Movie Monday - 每星期會提供一套 Netflix 電影給大家,欣賞之後再參加我們舉辦的網上 (Zoom) 討論。

2. Busy Fingers - 會用 Zoom 進行手工藝教學和指導。手工藝製作有好多好處,例如改善手眼協調,發揮創作和促進社交。

3. Social & Lifestyle Connection - 這項目有幾類活動,包括健康教育講座,健康與運動,大家交談和互動交流,遊戲,科技講座和旅遊講座。

十分多謝 Seniors Online Planning Committee 和其他義工。他們正在密鑼緊鼓作最後的安排,希望在五月推出項目。如果大家需要多些資料和報名詳情,請到 AGOAC 的網站,再選 menu 中的 Seniors Online Project 網頁。多謝各位。

Our last major event was our Annual Dinner a year ago in February 2020. Who knew at that time what havoc the pandemic would wreak. While there is a light at the end of the tunnel with more vaccines becoming available we are still limited in our physical activities and contacts. At this time of year stay safe and do not take unnecessary risks. Enjoy the company of your family.

Come Make a Short Film with Us
posted 2020-05-08 13:31 by Thomas Yee

As you all know, senTV was officially launched in March 2020.

senTV was created by Angus Glen Older Adults Club filmmaking group with the assistance of the Ontario Senior Community Grant. senTV covers a variety of subjects and has become the vehicle of promoting an active lifestyle among older adults while practicing social distancing. There are plenty of videos on www.sentv.org created by senTV filmmakers and AGOAC program instructors to make this a fun website.

One of the upcoming projects is to produce a fun video on “Nostalgia”. This short film is to showcase an individual’s favorite or sentimental toy, game or hobby from childhood with happy memories. It will be an interesting film since many of us come from different parts of the world.

Answering your COVID-19 questions

Today (Mar 12, 2020) the World Health Organization (WHO) upgraded the COVID-19 outbreak from a global health emergency to a pandemic. While the global situation is changing rapidly, York Region Public Health remains committed to providing residents with trusted, dependable and timely updates about COVID-19. You can find up-to-date information about Public Health preparations, symptoms and transmission, how to protect yourself and more on the dedicated COVID-19 page provided.

Planning to travel over March Break?

With March Break only days away, we know many York Region families may have upcoming travel plans. Be sure to check any travel advisories before you leave town and follow the appropriate precautions upon your return. Travellers returning from Iran or Hubei province are required to contact Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653 and self-isolate for 14 days upon return.

All other international travellers should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, new cough, shortness of breath) for 14 days after returning.

Break the chain of transmission

With new emerging cases in York Region, the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and common cold and flu viruses is to practice good hygiene and take steps to prevent the spread of respiratory infections.

Here are some hygiene tips:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
• Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
• Avoid contact with people who are sick
• Stay home if you are sick

February 8, 2020 - 6th Annual Gala. Another success for the history books. Our largest ever. 446 attendees. 35% increase over last year. Major kudos to Chair Anny Chow, Club Secretary and her Co-Chair Alan Lee for the coordination efforts both put into the event and their guidance of the Gala teams to lead to our largest, most successful event to date. A big thank-you to all the volunteers that devoted their time and effort toward our marquee event. Volunteers lead to success. It was not a dull evening. Dancing, singing, musical interludes, program demonstrations were just part of an enjoyable night out. Our event engendered community involvement and with both members and non-members participating AGOAC is becoming the premier seniors club in Markham. Because of numerous other events providing competition at this time of year, our attendance was a reflection of the dedicated work put into getting historic numbers of members and non-members to attend.

Please note that for this coming session “Mindful Self-Compassion" the prerequisite is for members who have completed the previous eight or twelve mindfulness lessons. 

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being.

It also helps us accept our flaws and better understand our challenges.

DRIVING SAFE IN WINTER
posted 2019-10-18 16:19 by John Chan

SLOW DOWN NOT BECAUSE THERE IS DISPLAY BOARD
THIS IS YOUR OWN SAFETY


Through the City’s speed management program, Speed Advisory Display Boards help educate and modify driver behaviour by reducing vehicle speeds in problematic areas of our community. Using radar technology, the devices record approaching vehicle speeds and display it back to the driver. Most of our units are also equipped with variable messaging advising drivers to slow down when traveling at excessive speeds. Data collected from the display boards over the past several years has shown that, while deployed, vehicle speeds can be reduced by up to 20%.

For the October – December period, the City’s 24 speed advisory display boards have been deployed to the priority locations listed below in Ward 6.

STREET & SECTION WITHIN WARD 6
Bur Oak Avenue. Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School Zone
Greenspire Ave. Between Major Mackenzie Dr. E & Castlemore Ave.
19th Avenue. Between Kennedy Rd. & Warden Ave.

Following this deployment period, the display boards will be redeployed to other priority locations within the City in January. For more information on the program, please refer to the City’s Traffic Engineering website at www.markham.ca/traffic and click on “Speed Management”.

Speed Advisory Display Board Locations (July - September)
posted 2019-07-16 09:30 by John Chan

Through the City’s speed management program, Speed Advisory Display Boards help educate and modify driver behaviour by reducing vehicle speeds in problematic areas of our community. Using radar technology, the boards record approaching vehicle speeds and display it back to the driver. Most of these units are also equipped with variable messaging advising drivers to slow down when traveling at excessive speeds. Data collected from the display boards over the past several years has shown that, while deployed, vehicle speeds can be reduced by up to 20%.

In the period from July to September, the City has deployed the speed advisory display boards to the priority locations in Ward 6 below.

STREET & SECTION
Angus Glen Blvd.
Between Royal County Down Cres. & Royal Troon Cres.
Castlemore Ave.
Castlemore Public School Zone & At Wismer Park

Following this deployment period, the display boards will be redeployed to other priority locations within the City in October. For more information on the program, please refer to the City’s Traffic Engineering website at www.markham.ca/traffic and click on “Speed Management”.

2019 Charity Craft Sale - yarn donations and volunteers
posted 2019-04-07 12:53 by Angela Wong

Thanks to the generosity and support of our members/volunteers, the Craft group ran three very successful charitable sale events in the last 3 years. The success of these events encouraged us to continue on this path of giving back to the community.

The Craft group is once again asking for donations of yarns which will be used to make items for the next Craft Sale for charity. We depleted almost all of our inventory in the last craft sale and we need to build up enough inventory for this upcoming sale. Your support will help us accomplish that. The recipient of the proceeds will be decided later on in the year once we have enough yarns/inventory to determine the event date.

If you are interested in participating in this worthy cause, you may:

1.Donate yarns (no mohair please) - in any one of the following ways:
1.we can pick up the items, email us at craft@agoac.ca to arrange for pick up; or
2.drop them off at any of the Tai Chi or Craft classes; or
3.give them to any of the following individuals - Angela Wong, Cecilia Mao, Kitty Ko, Kerry Chan, Marener Ho, May Chu, Maggie Tsang, Mina Wong, Betty Su, Patty Wong or Priscilla Chin.

2.Volunteer to make items - all volunteers (members and non-members) are welcome, send us an email and we will contact you.

The sooner you donate/Volunteer, the more we can make. Thanks in advance for your support. If you have any questions, feel free to write to Angela Wong at craft@agoac.ca

Badminton Open House - Sunday Sept 2, 10:30am-1:30pm
posted 2018-08-08 11:13 by Casey Chung

All AGOAC members are cordially invited to the Open House on Sunday September 2nd from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm in Angus Glen Community Centre.

The Badminton group has been steadily increasing from a few players about 10 years ago to about 120 members before the incorporation of AGOAC in 2014. After incorporation, the Group has been increasing to the current size of more than 200 members on record. Its popularity is due to its intangible value earned over years and its continuous forward looking to enhance the Group image both internally and externally. Achieving it, the Group has adopted the Club's mission for transparency and fairness through changes, both big and numerous over years. The change is big because it has transformed from a close group to an open group which opens up to all AGOAC members. The change is numerous because its manual registration and operation is replaced by continuous automation. The registration has been gradually changing from emailing to online registration. By automation, the Group is now able to automate the roster, court assignment and attendance list. The automation saves lot of labour, affords them to emphasize on quality use of time in order to manage the Group with 200+ members. Hopefully, the Group will successfully transform to a respectful one which members would like to join.

In order to introduce the Group to the members,especially to new members, the Badminton Adhoc Committee have planned the following activities for the day on the basis of FRIENDSHIP FIRST COMPETITION SECOND.

All members (including renewed and new members) are reminded to bring their new (Pink) membership cards

The information for the following programs in the Open House will be updated once more details and the no. of participants are known.

Please send all inquiries and registration to badminton@agoac.ca
Potential new badminton players are welcome to come and play : This provides an opportunity for you to understand the skill level of the new members so that the court monitors can assign you to the appropriate court with similar skill level to have fun game in the new Club year starting late September. Please bring your racket, suitable sport dress, non-marking court shoe and AGOAC membership card to sign in the attendance sheet.

In-house tournament (From 10:30 am to 1:30 pm) :
Regular badminton players and non badminton group players are welcome to participate the in-house tournament. This provides an opportunity to expose yourself to play in the competitive environment. Experience tells us that members' skill will normally increase after each tournament. The badminton group has held several in-house tournaments themselves in the past in the following format

In double only (women's double, men's double, mixed double, 21-point game system):

The competition will be divided in 3 levels of skill : Elementary, intermediate and advanced. This will allow any member to participate according to their skill level. A member is allowed to sign up a maximum of 2 competitions in the same skill level.
Plastic birdie will be used.

For those who are interested to participate in the in-house tournament, please register by clicking the following Google Form link

https://goo.gl/forms/MkxcCScBEEinlI6A3

Due to limited hours, we can only accept 32 participants, on the basis as first-come-first-serve with the following priority:

1) New AGOAC members or non-badminton AGOAC members not previously registered in Badminton program
2) Current Badminton members refer new members to participate, as defined in previous item no.1
3) Current Badminton members

In The form, you are required to provide the following information
-member name and membership number
-your intended competition :
-men's double, women's double or mixed double
-Skill level i.e. elementary, intermediate or advanced

Please register by 11:59 pm on Monday Aug. 20 to allow us time to organize the event.

ROAD TO THE CHAMPION:
The team with the most wins will be the champion.
If the top 2 teams happen to have the same number of wins, positions will be decided by their "FACE TO FACE" result.
If the top 3 or more teams happen to have the same number of wins, positions will be decided by their "NET POINTS". That is, the difference between total points won and total points lost.

Christmas Food Drive
posted 2017-12-05 17:33 by Anny Chow

In keeping with the spirit of Christmas giving, the Line Dance Coordinating Committee is happy to collect non-perishable food items and also personal hygiene products (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.) for the Markham Food Bank (www.markhamfoodbank.ca).

17 per cent of Markham’s population is poor, having an income of less than $25,000 a year. For a family, nearly half of that is spent on rent. After bills, hydro and all the other things, food comes last and sometimes there is not enough.

According to the Food Bank, the most needed Food Items are:
• Small Bags of Rice • Canned Peas
• Crackers • Canned Milk
• Granulated Sugar • Juice
• Jam • Jello

Anyone who wishes to donate is welcome to bring any non-perishable items to:
- any line dance class, per Program schedules, until December 16, 2017
- the AGM to be held on December 17, 2017 at 3 pm in AR1
- the Line Dance Christmas party to be held on December 17, 2017 at 5 pm in AR1

The Line Dance Coordinating Committee sincerely thank you for your support and wish you a Merry Christmas.

Markham Food Bank - Update
posted 2016-12-20 10:49 by Thomas Yee

Supported by the AGOAC Board, and in keeping with the spirit of Christmas giving, 2 small group parties were held on December 11 and 18, back to back Sundays, to collect food items for Markham Food Bank (www.markhamfoodbank.ca). These parties were hosted by the Angus Glen evening line dance groups and friends (Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays).

A stock pile of non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products were donated. $213 were also raised through donation and minimal admission fees. A check has been issued by the Club and will be delivered to the Markham food bank. Many thanks to the volunteers who facilitated all the party logistics, especially those who helped to collect the food items and deliver them to the local fire halls.

17 per cent of Markham’s population is poor, having an income of less than $25,000 a year. For a family, nearly half of that is spent on rent. After bills, hydro and all of the other things, food comes last and sometimes there is not enough. We hope that this small gesture will help those in need.

Special acknowledge also goes to the line dance instructors and our impromptu DJs who helped to make these parties so much fun!

The AG evening line dance groups and friends wish everyone a merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Craft Sale (September 30 to October 6, 2016)
posted 2016-10-08 21:40 by Thomas Yee

The Craft Sale that was initiated by Wednesday Craft class members in support of the Yellow Brick House, a charitable organization that provides shelter and counselling services to abused women and children in York Region, was a huge success.

In April, we asked AGOAC members to donate scrap yarns to the craft team. Responses from members and non-members were astounding; we received ample new and unused yarns. Since then, volunteers and team members had been busy knitting and crocheting creative items and making preparation for the sale.

Most of the items made from donated yarns were sold within the first four days of sale. The team was so motivated that additional items were donated to raise more funds for this meaningful sale. The teamwork exhibited by all involved truly exemplified what AGOAC is all about - friendship, cooperation, commitment, unselfishness, caring for one another, fun, laughter, and a kind heart, just to name a few!

Many thanks to everyone (members and non-members) for supporting this meaningful event, we couldn't have done it without you. We are proud to announce that we raised a grand total of $3,388 for Yellow Brick House -- a truly rewarding experience and achievement by the Crafters!

Congratulations to Kitty Ko, the winner of the prize draw for a red bear. A special appreciation goes to Maggie Tsang for her dedication - 100% attendance of the whole event! Great Teamwork, everyone!

Angela Wong
Craft Sale Project Leader

AGOAC uses Google Group broadcasting
posted 2015-12-13 19:54 by Angela Wong

Due to recent changes in Google policies for mass broadcasting, AGOAC has not been able to broadcast to our members effectively and efficiently. We have been trying hard to find a solution to this problem for the last few months. In October, we announced AGOAC website. We are pleased to see the growing number of users. We are now ready for the next step: Google Group broadcasting.

All AGOAC members have been added to the Google Group. It will be used by AGOAC for various reasons to expedite the communication with our members. This is one way broadcasting; it is NOT a forum. This means members should not reply to the notice or any broadcasting messages originate from any sender with no-reply

With this introduction, there are four ways that AGOAC communicates with its members:

1. AGOAC website : www.agoac.com (For posting of general AGOAC information, announcement, schedule, schedule changes etc)
2.AGOAC Group Broadcasting for various reasons to expedite communication with members via no-reply@agoac.com (Do not reply to this email address as it does not receive email)
3.AGOAC main account : agoac2014@gmail.com (For members to communicate with the Board.)
4.AGOAC subgroup account as indicated in the program schedule (For communication that are specific to the subgroup, for example, registration, etc.)

The above should help to streamline and improve AGOAC's communication to all members. Thanks for your patience.
