Many of you will have received an invitation to access your shiny new branded unit email address in the last week. We hope these will be a really useful tool for your teams.

If you have not received an invitation email, but would like to have a Girlguiding Bath branded email address to use for your unit correspondence, please email divisioncommissioner@girlguidingbath.org.uk. Please note: invitations have gone to the main unit contact and any other leaders with modules 1-4 in your unit. If you are an assistant leader or leader in training, please check with your main unit contact to see if an email address has been issued to your unit.

We want to stress to everyone that you do not have to use a branded unit email address if you don’t want to – they are entirely optional. There are a number of benefits to using a branded email address, particularly your team shares responsibility for unit communications/admin, if you are expecting your leadership team to change in the coming year, or if you have concerns about giving out your own personal email address. However, if you are happy as you are, then please do not feel that you have to change. Just let Kirsty know so that we have a record of which units are using their email addresses and which are not.

I hope that those units who do use the branded emails will find them useful. If you have any questions or would like some training to help you make the most out of your new email – and the online storage space and resources associated with it – then please contact divisioncommissioner@girlguidingbath.org.uk.
