Epsilon Sigma Phi
The Extension Professionals' Organization



The Epsilon Sigma Phi Newsletter is published six times each year: January/February, March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October and November/December. Three copies are printed as hard copy and sent by surface mail to life members that have not submitted email addresses. All six copies are posted on the ESP website. It serves as a supplement to very important chapter newsletters that are your principal means of keeping all members informed about happenings in our National ESP Organization. Contributions to the Epsilon Sigma Phi Newsletter by Chapter members are essential to having the publication represent significant news of all regions, chapters, and committees.

In order to make the Epsilon Sigma Phi Newsletter useful, Chapter help is needed! All Chapters are encouraged to send glossy pictures of important events, with captions and a short article describing the activity to the Editor of the Connection who is the National Executive Director. Any contributions should reach the National Executive Director by the 25th of the month before the issue goes to press (the middle of the months of publication): December 25th deadline for inclusion in December/January newsletter. February 25th deadline for inclusion in February/March newsletter. April 25th deadline for inclusion in April/May newsletter. June 25th deadline for inclusion in June/July newsletter. Aug 25th deadline for inclusion in August/September newsletter. October 25th deadline for inclusion in the October/November newsletter.

Chapter feature articles are also most welcome! Ideas for feature articles might be:

  • outstanding accomplishments by members
  • how retirees are being more actively involved
  • how you have succeeded in securing and holding new members
  • how to encourage active members to pay their dues promptly
  • events or activities of the chapter

Each chapter newsletter editor or president should send a copy of their chapter newsletter to the National President, the Vice President from his or her region, and to chapter presidents in their region. Such an exchange of information can maximize the benefits of your successful experiences by sharing your ideas with your colleagues in your region.

Also, make sure the Executive Director is on the mailing list for your chapter newsletter. Often accomplishments can be capsulated and shared across the nation through a reprint in the Epsilon Sigma Phi Newsletter.

Other ESP Communications with Members and Chapters:

ESP Communications with members and chapters are vital to the strength of the organization. ESP has adopted the use of electronic communication tool that is an email marketing program. The email marketing tool will be used to send information that needs immediate attention that will not wait until the next edition of the Connection is published. Publications of this type from the National ESP Office will be made with input from the National ESP Board and National Committees. It will be shared with all members who have email addresses. The email publication will be used to get information of opportunities for members to participate in activities or to remind members of deadlines that are approaching.
