The duty of the CDS group is much more than meetings every day, public sensitization sometimes or collection of monthly CDS clearance. From the very moment a new body of executives assume seat, hands must be on deck to ensure something meaningful is contributed in terms of projects done.
In order to accomplish this, sometimes the dues and fees from the CDS purse might not be enough to carry this out. It becomes important then to source for additional funds. The CDS EXCOS can make contact with individuals and corporate bodies within and outside the community who can render needed assistance in helping to finance these projects. Reminders for such can also be sent across through bulk SMS.
Additionally, it is important that the community you are rendering this service to and fellow Corp members in other CDS groups but in the same community learn about the project you are embarking on. This can also help them make meaningful contributions, ideas and suggestions to the success of the project.
What more? Massive advertisement of such projects can get the words about it into the ears of the right authorities and you win accolades and awards for such. And for the duration of time for which that project lasts, your CDS group will not be forgotten and will be a reference point for other Corp members who succeed your administration in your CDS group.
Talk about an effective and massive communication medium for this purpose and bulk SMS readily comes to your mind. Registration of a free account is still ongoing and free SMS units are up for grabs. Its uses for your CDS group are enormous.
