Boston, MA – February 3, 2010 – In an effort to further its commitment to helping private clubs succeed, VCT Corporation, the industry leader in custom ePublishing and member communication solutions, announced today, that it has joined the PCS Industry Network, a subscriber benefit of Premier Club Services®. Created by the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), Premier Club Services provides its subscribing member clubs with a distinct collection of innovative programs and resources for the successful operation of clubs.
In lieu of the current economic challenges facing the industry, VCT intends to expedite the adoption of ePublishing solutions by Premier Club Services subscriber clubs by offering a 2010 “member activation package” at a preferred subscriber-only price point. VCT will develop an educational “ePublishing Primer” to inform subscriber clubs of the importance of developing a brand-focused eCommunication strategy that cultivates member loyalty and engagement, especially during this economic downturn. VCT will offer PCS subscribers an affordable ePublishing managed service that will include the development of a club eMagazine designed to stimulate member engagement and significantly reduce costly administrative overhead.
Ron Rosenbaum, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for CMAA commented, “We are pleased to be adding VCT to our PCS network of industry supporters and to be able to extend this much-needed service to our subscribers. VCT is an excellent compliment to our current roster of PCS Industry Network suppliers and we believe that their services will add value to the program for our subscribers.”
