New Schedule for CSAC Bulletin
May 5, 2016
For the past several years CSAC has been publishing our weekly Bulletin on Fridays. Starting today, we will begin sending the Bulletin to you on Thursday afternoons by 3:00 p.m.
Why the change? Well, we asked, and most of the people who responded to our survey said they’d prefer to get the Bulletin on Thursday afternoons as opposed to Friday. And also, the legislative week is typically over by Thursday afternoon, when legislators return home to their districts. We’re going to work hard to synthesize the important policy and legislative news and get it to you a day sooner.
We also know that there are many holiday Fridays so we hope that the new Thursday publication will mean fewer days when we have to change the schedule for some reason. Having said that, there are always exceptions to the rule and we do anticipate occasionally having to change the day we publish the Bulletin to accommodate the legislative or budget cycle, or an event of some kind.
For example, our Legislative Conference is coming up in a couple of weeks, and it won’t be over until the afternoon of Thursday, May 19. To accommodate the news and information sure to come out of the conference, that week we will publish the Bulletin on Friday, May 20.
You may have noticed that we also recently redesigned the Bulletin. We are trying to present more information in a more accessible format and approachable writing style. Someone once said “You can’t please all the people all the time,” and there’s no doubt that’s true. We hope with these changes to the Bulletin, we’ll be pleasing more of the people more of the time.
