BVN Google Site:
What are the benefits of the BVN Google Site?
BVN, under the guidance of Brian Jensen, relaunched the BVN Google Site at the February 2014 annual meeting and provided a refresher at the February 2015 meeting. The site is customizable and a work in progress. We can easily modify the site at any time. Highlights include the opportunity to upload and store documents, maintain an active membership directory, and share information.
We can also restrict access and permissions. While it is a member benefit, the site can also be used as a recruitment tool, for example, if we want to tout our best practices file.
How do I get to it?

How do I get permission to contribute to the site?
Can’t access the site? We’ve been working diligently to get all our member information added. If you can’t access the site it might be because we do not have your gmail information. Please email Brian Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Gmail email address and he will work his magic. Don’t have a gmail account?
Here is how to create a free account: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?service=mail
Once approved, any user can add documents, modify content, and participate in discussions. This is a great tool to use between meetings to keep in touch and support each other’s volunteer efforts.
How do I add my information to the director?
Two simple clicks!
How do I help improve the site?
2015 brings a renewed effort to use the site to its potential. As mentioned at our February annual meeting, we’d love your help to grow the site to be a more valuable resource for everyone. Please make sure you add your company information to the membership directory and feel free to upload best practice information, a community event or start a discussion on the forum.
What are other ways to keep in touch with BVN members?
The board is working on improving communication. This new and improved enewsletter is just one example. It will be emailed approximately two weeks after each meeting. We also have a BVN group on LinkedIn. Not a member? Join today!
