For 2016 and going forward, the Club Headquarters newsletter called Heartland Highlights will take on a new style and be stored in a new location.

The new location will be the new club platform at: www.heartlandowners.org/club (//heartlandowners.org/club)

Here's a more specific link (//heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/) (All Articles from the menu) to just Heartland Highlights content.

The new style will be that of an article stream rather than a separate PDF that includes all articles. Each article will be categorized. The Heartland Highlights Newsletter menu is merely a list of categories with each being clickable.

Clicking the All Articles (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/) menu item will display all newsletter articles from all categories.

While it will grow over time - as more article categories are added, here's what the menu looks like as of 3-Jan-2016:

HEARTLAND HIGHLIGHTS NEWSLETTER


All Articles (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/)

Membership Statistics (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/member-stats/)
RV Tips (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/rv-tips/)
Safety (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/safety/)
Rally Recipes (https://heartlandowners.org/club/category/heartland-highlights-newsletter/rally-recipes/)

Very little new content has yet to be created and added. We have merely republished a few of the 2015-Q3 articles to get a sense of how they would look on this new platform.

There is no plan to notify club members each time a new Heartland Highlights Newsletter article is published. The reason being that we've gotten a bit of pushback from some members about getting notifications from the forum each time a newsletter was posted there and each time a comment about the newsletter was posted.

Please use this thread to give feedback on the type of articles you'd like to see in Heartland Highlights.

Great, Jim! This looks like a good solution that will transition from a page-layout design-intensive PDF format to an easily accessible, user-friendly, searchable online format.
