Use the Bulletin Board to Get the Word Out

Posted on 11/18/2010 3:27:36 PM

Are you selling furniture or a car? Are you searching for tickets for an upcoming concert or game? Do you want to promote an event for a nonprofit organization with which you’re involved?

You can do all those things and more with the Bulletin Board on the IUP website.

The Bulletin Board is similar to the classified ads section of a newspaper, but for IUP employees only. Employees can use it to sell or give away items, search for needed items, and promote community causes or other non-IUP events.

While Bulletin Board items are posted on the IUP website, where they remain for two weeks, they also run for five days in IUP Daily, the e-mail newsletter distributed to all employees. See Bulletin Board policies for more details about how the Bulletin Board can be used.

Why use the Bulletin Board? Besides that it is an effective way to spread the word, the Bulletin Board helps to reduce the number of individual e-mails sent to all employees—instead incorporating many solicitations into one official communication: IUP Daily. And, posting something to the Bulletin Board once will result five days worth of e-mail communication through the daily newsletter.

If you haven’t used it yet, be sure to check out the Bulletin Board.

Remember that to submit an ad for the Bulletin Board, you need to be on the IUP network. If you’re off campus, connect through the Virtual Private Network (VPN).
