Members can now opt to receive their quarterly members magazine digitally. This enables you to read the magazine in a digital format online, as well as accessing individual articles and columns from current and previous magazine issues.
Members who opt to receive their copies digitally will receive an email with previews of key stories and a link for a digital version of the magazine as soon as it is published each quarter – no more waiting for the post to arrive.
“Although the majority of members prefer reading their printed copy of the magazine, a growing number have said they also like the convenience of being able to read articles on their computer desktops or mobile devices,” said Grey Power magazine editor David Porter.
“Everyone has their own preferences: some members like to know they get the most up to date member news in their email as soon as an issue is published, while others simply like to feel they are doing their part for the planet by cutting back on printed material.”
Digital subscribers are also able to easily search for old articles or issues of the magazine on line.
Although most Grey Power members are more comfortable with the familiarity and convenience of reading Grey Power magazine in the traditional printed format, many tech-savvy readers are opting for the digital version.
Publisher Alan Neben said: “We are not trying to force members to have to use technology when they may not be comfortable with it – many are frustrated by the constant push to communicate online.We want readers to have options. Our job is to make sure Grey Power communication to members is clear, effective and simple to access.”
Grey Power subscribers who would prefer to receive the digital-only version of the quarterly magazine via email should go to www.greypowermag.co.nz/subscribe and enter their details. You will need to have your membership number handy.
In addition to the convenience, it also offers savings in print and mailing costs for the Federation – and that ultimately helps keep the cost of subs low.
