At the time when the current leadership of CPCUG told of their thoughts to discontinue e-mail service for the general membership, I wrote that I believed it to be a poor course of action. Posting the announcement of their decision to do just that late in the day before a holiday and during the summer vacation season was perfectly ridiculous.
Additionally, I find what amounts to 14 business days (since I will be on vacation in July) for me to correct what is now my problem a bit short especially since the service is continuing for ”...the few official accounts used by active officers and directors.”
I have been an active member in good standing for 20 years and this has been my primary e-mail account for the entire time. Pulling up roots and moving is an involved task at best.
I wish to offer an alternative; I would like to purchase 90 days of the current e-mail service (until Oct 1st, 2014). This will afford me the opportunity to transition to another provider in an orderly manner. And frankly, we all deserve that.
