HAPPY BIRTHDAY WIRED! ONE YEAR LATER AND STILL GOING STRONG
The ECA(SA) launched its electronic newsletter, Wired, on 20 June last year … A year and 22 issues later, it’s still going strong. The brainchild of Mark Mfikoe, the ECA(SA)’s National Director, Wired has given the ECA an even louder voice in the electrical contracting industry – which is exactly what he envisioned.
“I cannot imagine the ECA(SA) without Wired! Actually, I cannot imagine life without Wired!” says Mark. “Wired is now the vehicle that drives bi-weekly communication to industry and provides immediate-response articles as well as point-of-sale information in its quest to deliver harmonious interaction between our members and suppliers of electrical goods,” says Mark. “Happy birthday Wired! May you be there long after we are gone!”
All the ECA’s Regional Directors agreed that Wired had made a difference in how information is shared, and that the e-newsletter had increased the ECA’s reach.
Chris Koen, Regional Director for the Highveld region said, “Wired is an excellent source of information and it’s effective as an advertising tool to publicise what the ECA does for our members. I like that I can go back to old articles when I need to research a topic.”
His view is shared by Pieter du Toit, Regional Director for the Free State and Northern Cape, who says it’s difficult to believe that Wired has been going for a year. “It seems like yesterday that the idea was still in the making. What a privilege to be part of it and it’s so nice to know that there is no stopping this magnificent initiative. It has set new boundaries for the ECA.”
