Alix Hayward Newsletter Award
Awarded to BPW Hawera
This award is presented at Conference to the club which is judged to have displayed the best standard of communication during the previous year, primarily through the club newsletter.
As electronic publications require a different approach to print versions, the entry questions are designed to help the judges ascertain the effectiveness of club communications, no matter which medium is used.
The questions on circulation should indicate whether the club uses its newsletters to promote itself in the wider community, e.g. target women who may be potential members, or to keep in touch with former members.
The questions on the national Circular will help judge the electronic editions in particular, as the Newsletter is often directly forwarded electronically to club members.
The section headed role of club newsletter allows editors to explain their aims, and to comment on the effectiveness of their work. It is designed more to encourage self-evaluation (and thus raise the standard) than to help the judges.
The judging will generally be weighted 60% content and 40% presentation
