How NYSC CDS Coordinators can use Bulk SMS for Weekly Meetings Reminders

  29 February 2016

As part of the NYSC directive towards realizing the major aim of its scheme, for serving youth Corp members to impact positively in the community they find themselves, every serving Corp member is mandated to join a community development service (CDS) group during his/her duration of service.



Among the numerous activities of the CDS groups, weekly meetings are of the optimum importance. It is at these meetings that the objectives and goals of the group are reemphasized, projects to embark on are decided on and how to sensitize the general public who will benefit from the scheme is discussed.


In order to successfully organize and run the CDS group efficiently, the executives of a particular CDS group needs to have regular and effective communication with the other members of the group. This will ensure that as many as possible converge at the venue for the meetings weekly and contribute their quota towards the realization of the group’s objectives.


For many years now, since the advent of SMS as a means of communication, bulk SMS has proven to be an effective communication aid to reach many people with important information at the same time. With bulk SMS, you can communicate the time and venue of the CDS group’s upcoming meetings to all the members.


Bulk SMS can be also important since most CDS groups do not have a particular venue for meetings, but have to change venues on a weekly basis. It can also help to intimate members who for one reason or the other did not make it to the meeting the previous week of the venue of meeting and time for the following week.


All you need to do is first get the phone numbers of all the youth Corp members in your CDS group. Then, register a free bulk SMS account. For sending these bulk messages easily, you can equally save these numbers as a phonebook on your bulk SMS account. Learn how here.


Registration of a bulk SMS account with SmartSMSSolutions earns you free bulk SMS units after registration and what more? You will be getting yourself a bulk SMS gateway specifically designed to meet your needs as a CDS group executive.
