New Website & Newsletter Testing

Sure, we’ve been around since 1901, but that doesn’t mean we have to look it! Ask anyone over 50 about their bell-bottoms, and they’ll tell you about changing fashions. Certainly, image matters – we all like to fit in, yet be outstanding. And first impressions matter as much as the work we do. Last year (2014), we saw the transition of identity from the Missouri Association of Social Welfare to Empower Missouri. Like a butterfly, we had reemerged invigorated with a new beautiful and functional appearance.  Now in 2015, we’re making a huge leap forward to improving our communications. Image is only part of a likable person, the other part is the personality. We think Empower Missouri has a great personality! And we’re moving in a direction to better share it with you.

Here’s what you can expect to see in the coming weeks (and months) ahead:

  • New website
  • New newsletter design & functionality
  • A monthly newsletter
  • New Social Media Tools
  • Video meetings delivered straight to your mobile device
  • Up-to-the-moment content

We’re big advocates for change and we think you’ll appreciate the strides we’re making. But remember that, as with any big changes, there are sure to be kinks. We appreciate your patience as we begin to roll out these changes. We’ll be doing our best to make it as seamless as possible.
