The St. Clair County Medical Society Board of Directors has been discussing the future of the Medical Society Bulletin. Advertising in the bulletin has dropped over the years and the cost to print and mail is more than we make. We will continue to publish the Bulletin however, we will be changing the way we distribute the publication in the future. We will be distributing the Bulletin by e-mail, and later considering placing it on our website. (www.st.clairmed.com )
The changes will not take place until late 2015. However, we need your assistance in preparing for this transition.
Members who would like to receive the Bulletin by e-mail need to send their email address to email@example.com to continue receiving the publication. Please know that your e-mail address will be kept confidential if you choose to receive the Bulletin via your e-mail.
Members who would like to still receive the Bulletin by US Mail need to contact the medical society office and make their request known.
We welcome all suggestions from our members regarding this change.
