Help... Got made an Admin and I have a question

Hi!! I sent an email to Cafemom about a group that I had joined that had no activity. I got a reply back and was told that the Admin had move a while back and they was looking for a new one. The reply also said that if I was interested in the Admon spot to let them know. Well, lol, I did not tell them I was interested but I was made Admin so here I am. Is there a way to send out a mass message to all memebers of a group to introduce myself and let them know the group is active again?Thank you!!!

Yes send a group memo. It should be under the more tab on the admin tool bar on the groups home page.

Find the *send a bulletin* under admin tools,
It goes to all members.
You can tell them you are the admin as well as anything else you want to share with the members,
Good luck :)

Well, crap! I went to FAQ because I did not see what you ladies was talking about. Apparently only group owners and Head Admins can sent out memos/bulletins and I am only a regular Group Admin. Oh well, I will do the best with what I have I guess. That you for reply so quickly :-)

Maybe contact them again and ask them to make you a head admin or the owner.  Then you could send the bulletin.  If the admin moved I don't see why they would not do it for you.  And then if they don't, ask them why?

I went ahead and did that today there are too many memebers of the group to send out PM. Over hundred of them. The sadly alot of them has not logged into the group since 2008-2010 and looking at their profile some of them have not logged into CM since then also. There are a few new members in the last six months that have not come back because they did not get a response to there post or replies. I replied to some of them when I first joined the group. I hope I can get the group started back up again. I was really excited when I first found the group because I just moved to Texas two years ago and know very few people.

I'd set the thing to 60 days if they don't check in it will delete them from the group. I did this to one of mine and now its way more active.
