More Central Region Venturing on 2010 Event and facebook

Subject: Info on the Jan 15 National Venturing event announcement

We are very excited about the National Venturing event and it has generated a lot of membership for our regional Facebook group. While we use it rarely at the region level, one nice feature for groups is being able to message all members. However, once a group goes over 5000 members, the messaging feature is no longer available (Facebook rules).

The Central Region Venturing group is quickly approaching the 5000 membership threshold. If you are in the Central Region and would like to receive announcements about the National Venturing event and other important Venturing news, it is very important that you join your appropriate Area and Council Venturing Facebook groups as well.

Because of the facebook limit, the message will be sent out to all members of CRV AREA Venturing Facebook groups, arriving in your fb Inboxes and email if your account settings permit it. If you do not join your Area group, you will need to look on the Central Region Venturing facebook group wall for the National Venturing event announcement on Jan 15.
