By using bulk SMS to send CDS meeting reminders to all the members; there is a bigger chance of having a full house on the meeting day. But even with this, it is impossible to always have everyone present at every CDS meeting. The reason for this been that individual circumstances differ, and also unexpected emergencies might cause some to be absent.
Those who are not able to make it to the weekly meeting for unavoidable reasons deserves to know what major decisions were made in their absence or outstanding decisions yet to be made on which their opinions matters. Additionally, even those present at the meeting equally deserve a recap of the major points discussed to keep these in their memories.
With bulk SMS, it becomes very easy to send this update across to everybody at the same time, and at a very cheap price at that. All you need to do is just login to your bulk SMS account, compose a short message itemizing all the major points considered and send to all concerned.
