How can I change my email address for receiving event notifications?
At the bottom of every eNotify email are links to manage your subscription. Choose update profile to change your email.
I’ve moved, how can I receive event notifications for my new location?
Follow the same process as subscribing, go to: https://thecmg.org/join. Choose the areas you want to receive email for. This form will not remove you from any list. Use the unsubscribe link in any email for those local events.
If you are signed up for any of the Local Areas, you will also receive Statewide announcements automatically. This includes our Binky’s List newsletter. notices for Gatherings, membership meetings and sometimes the CMG Film Festival.
Does CMG share any of my information with other people?
Can you wipe my personal data from your system?
Several for-profit security companies are trying to convince people that reducing their digital footprint is safer for them. We are happy to honor those requests even though they can be time intensive for an all volunteer organization. Consider that removing all traces of your information also removes you from any designation you have requested that prevents email or phone calls, causing the potential for future contact as we don’t know that your information isn’t a new person. You do far better by just unsubscribing from our emails.
What is the Annual Members’ Meeting and how can I attend?
CMG’s Annual Members’ Meeting is our biggest planning meeting and is generally held in January around the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
It’s an important time to hear the Annual Report to Members from all CMG leaders; to elect Board officers for the year; to consider changes to the CMG bylaws; and participate in the “visioning” proposals — and share your opinions — that will guide us as an organization for years to come.
So if you’ve never attended, this is a great opportunity. (Men who have volunteered at least 25 hours to CMG in a recognized capacity during the past year — and pay $1 — are also entitled to vote on all proposals, according to our bylaws.)
Specifics on when and where this upcoming meeting will be held are emailed to everyone signed up to receive event notifications by early December.
