Improving our Communication to You

AES Broadcast  03/24/2011          Broadcast  #  2011018


Improving our Communication to You


The Foreign Trade Division of the U.S. Census Bureau is happy to share that we are revamping the way we communicate with you.  In the very near future we will change the delivery system that we use to send AES Broadcast messages.  The result?  A more efficient e-mail delivery service that you may customize to meet your subscription preferences.

Prior to the transition, you will receive one final AES Broadcast message from "FTD AES Broadcast" explaining the new e-mail bulletin service and tips on how to manage your bulletin subscription preferences. Once the changes go into effect, some exciting features you will notice are:

    - You will have the ability to choose what type of bulletin topics
      you want sent to your inbox. Topics include Training and
      Presentations, Newsletters and the Global Reach Exports and
      Imports Blog, to name a few

    - When a bulletin recipient determines they no longer have a need
      for the messages, there will also be an "unsubscribe" option

    - Our sender name will change to

    - The overall appearance of the bulletins will be more
      aesthetically pleasing
