Team announcements are posted by Team Leaders to share important information, keep the team organized, and more.

January Announcements (Volume 2, Number 1)Hi team! Happy new year!
This is your team co-leader, SOPALTENBASS (aka Sarah) with a few announcements about the team.
We're growing! I can't believe how far this team has come since I founded it a little more than two and a half years ago. We have 77 members both in and outside of the USA. WE HAVE MEN! I cannot begin to tell you how happy that makes me. We have a wide age range represented. You all are awesome!
This year, we WILL continue with weekly discussions and we will reinstitute monthly challenges. I encourage all of you to join our team goals (check them monthly, as some may change) and participate in team challenges.
I hereby promise to be a better team co-leader and on behalf of myself and MARJIJANE, I wish you good health and happiness in 2010!
August Announcements (Volume 1, Number 6)Hi Team, and welcome to the August edition of our team announcements.
First as always, we would like to welcome our new team members from July:
Welcome all of you. I've seen some of you on the Huddle Wall and in the forums. Keep up the good work and get involved here on the team. We love to see new faces!
Secondly, our July Challenge didn't go so well. And I realized today, that's because we only had two team members actually signed up for the Challenge. There will be reminders up all this weekend, to remind you about joining our August Challenge: drink 8 glasses of water or more per day. Curious about how to join a challenge? Every month I create a special team goal for that month's challenge. Just join that goal and track accordingly.
Because of the nature of this month's goal, I have deleted our other goal about drinking 8 glasses of water a day, so that should be an even bigger incentive to join the Challenge this month.
NOMINATE A TEAM MEMBER FOR TEAM MEMBER OF THE MONTH!
If you would like to nominate one of our members for team member of the month, please SparkMail me (SOPALTENBASS). We will begin Team Members of the Month in September
Lastly, I will be out of town from August 4th through August 18th. I may have some internet access during that time, but I don't know how much. Therefore, when I leave, I'll be handing over the team to my oh so capable co-leader, MARJIJANE. Rest assured you will be in good hands.
See you in September for the next edition of the Singing Fanatics Spark Team Announcements!
July AnnouncementsHello all! I hope you are all doing well!
First order of business this month, as always, is to welcome our new team members from June.
Welcome to all of you. Hope to see you around the forums.
Secondly, July will bring some changes to the team page. You will see new forums and new threads to participate in, including:
- A whole new forum where you can get some motivation if and when you need it.
- A new thread in which you will be able to critique a different vocal performance every week. The only way to improve your own performance is to recognize what makes for a good performance. I will of course be setting ground rules for that particular thread.
- A new "Come and Chat" thread in the General Discussion Forum that will take the place of the "FYI - Announcements" thread and will be a free for all. Any news, questions, or interesting topics you have can be posted there.
Each month we will have a featured Team Member.
Each month we will have a featured vocal style.
Each month we will have a Team Challenge.
All of these changes and improvements come from member participation in the Member Preferences Poll, which new members can find under the Weekly Discussion Forum.
Finally, you should be seeing a lot more of me around because I now have better access to the site. I am so glad to be back!
Keep up the good work, and spread the spark!
Your Team Co-Leader,
Sarah - aka SOPALTENBASS
June is Here!And my life is crazy as ever! Thanks to MARJIJANE for posting this week's discussion topic. I hope everyone is doing well. I will be going out of town for a few days in the middle of this month, and I won't have computer access at that time, so while I'm gone, MARJIJANE will be fully in charge. I have complete confidence in her. Rest assured you will be in good hands.
Welcome to all our new members from May, including:
I hope you all can find your niche here on Singing Fanatics!
Thank you to those who responded to the Member Preferences Poll. As a result of the poll, look for new features in the team forums going up later this week.
Have a fantastic month!
Reminder!Here's just a friendly reminder that there is 1 week left to take part in the Member Preferences survey (found in the discussion forum). So far, three people have submitted acceptable responses. That's only a 7% response rate! If you don't take part in the survey, your ideas won't be heard and you won't get another chance to tell me (in survey form) until next year.
