The General Council recognises the difficult times we are all working in have agreed we should use the range of services, currently available, to communicate more effectively with members. NIPSA currently have a text message service. This service is limited to 160 characters but can be useful in contacting members to alert them to developments and refer to further more detailed services or circulars.

Currently NIPSA’s membership database holds approximately 25,000 mobile phone numbers. This leaves a gap of approximately 16,000 members for whom we do not have mobile numbers.

The General Council are therefore asking branches to encourage members who have not already provided their mobile phone number to do so. This can either be collated by Branch Officers and forwarded to the NIPSA Membership Section or members can directly This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please provide name, Branch No (if known) and mobile number which can be uploaded to the NIPSA membership database.

Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
