Publishing a periodic agency newsletter is an important way to keep staff – as the primary audience
- and external stakeholders informed about what is happening within an agency. New initiatives,
noteworthy agency achievements, established programs and practical information to assist staff in
accomplishing their jobs are all topics that can be included. It is important to publish regularly
and to request the input of staff for article ideas. In so doing, staff is more engaged in the
process and more likely to read the document frequently. By posting a link to the newsletter on the
agency’s web site, all interested ind viduals will have access to the information while the costs of printing and impact on the environment will be significantly reduced.
