APA NW Member to Members Policies
APA NW m2m emails are a great way to selectively reach a safe, all-APA-NW-Member audience with classifieds, or event announcements. m2ms are generally sent out when we receive them and no more than once a week as a single compilation edition which usually include more than one members' ads or event announcements. These weekly editions are currently scheduled to go out each Friday. The final deadline is 2:00 PM the day before (each Thursday). Members' messages received after the deadline will be sent out in the following week's edition.
Members' Messages will be listed within the m2m Weekly Edition in the order in which they are received, with the member's name or company name at the top of each message. Please be sure to spell check and carefully proofread your message--all messages will be sent out as is.
TO BUY PLEASE DO NOT HIT REPLY
If you are interested in any m2m offers, please respond directly to the APA Member listed in the message; we simply cannot forward replies.
HOW TO POST YOUR OWN APA NW M2M MESSAGE
m2m is a regional benefit for APA NW members only. If you are an APA NW Leader, Professional, Associate, or Supporter Member in good standing, you can send out appropriate m2m emails by simply emailing your text only message to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (APA NW is an Associate Chapter of APA SF, our Regional Chapter).
Member Event announcements and Studio Rental posts can include a banner or graphic; send us a RBG, 150 ppi, 4" wide JPG.
We do not send out any attachments but you can include links within your message. We will forward your message right out on the upcoming Friday; be sure to include in your text a way (email address or phone) for interested people to respond directly to you, because we cannot forward replies.
The APA NW m2m Weekly Edition service is reserved for APA NW Members' Photo Equipment for Sale Classifieds, appropriate Member Job Opportunities, Studio Rental Classifieds, or Member Exhibit/Events, and Supporter (crew) Classified (30 words maximum) announcements only.
ONE m2m MESSAGE PER MEMBER PER MONTH (TWO FOR LEADER OR PRO)
Please consolidate all of your current m2m information into one message. To avoid inundating our members with too many lengthy emails, we will only send out one m2m message per month from any APA NW Supporter Member -- APA NW Leader and Professional members are entitled to two m2m messages per month.
