Guidelines for Digital District Communications

A modern Soil and Water Conservation District could not function without the use of the latest technologies. Whether in the field or office, technology has changed how districts operate. Smart phones, email, webpages, social media, blogs and other software and applications have made communicating with cooperators and others easier and timelier. However, when using digital communications, you still need to maintain professional standards.

While email is often considered less formal then a paper letter sent regular mail, items such as grammar, spelling, and format standards should be maintained. A poorly written email, filled with misspellings and grammatical errors will reflect badly on both the sender and the district as a whole.

Use this guide as a reference when creating digital communications. You may also want to consider using this as a training tool for new employees.
