St. Joseph College Alumnae Association

In 2008, bytes & words answered a call from the SJCAA to establish the first online presence for this nonprofit association and breathe new life into communications for its 2000+ membership as they prepared to celebrate their Bicentennial Reunion. We clarified branding to convey “200 Years of Women Learners,” explored their archives to develop a site map and engaging content, and designed their first website. With the addition of Constant Contact for ongoing Alumnae e-communications, the site was instrumental in publicizing the momentous 200-year reunion (which we were honored to attend).

In the past 5 years, we’ve worked with a succession of volunteers and management to improve SJCAA communications: Managing the website and email communications, adding/integrating Facebook, and designing the SJCAA’s flagship publication, The Valley Echo, for print and online delivery

In 2012, bytes & words worked with a new Communications Committee and Board to redevelop the website into an expanded, dynamic presence, built on a content management system. The new site — featuring prayer requests, article commenting, online donations and membership payments and photo galleries — has been very well-received. We continue to work with the SJCAA to develop avenues of communication to capture the memories and accomplishments of these women, who range in age from their 50s into the 90s.
