To help our members become better prepared and informed, the Public Policy committee for the AFP-Central Ohio chapter has created a color-coded messaging system for email communication to quickly notify members of local, state and national issues if the information warrants:
Red Alert — Immediate action is needed/highly important issues
Yellow Alert — Alert of new or pending rule/law or prevalent issues
Green Alert — General information
Our goal is not to determine chapter action or to take a stance on an issue, rather to provide a method and system helps you navigate through the variety of issues and information and act accordingly for your nonprofit.
