      Receiving CompassNEWS

      If you are not receiving CompassNEWS, you probably don't have a valid email address in the club directory (Members/Member Directory). Check the information under the Members/MyProfile tab and look at the rest of your contact information. 

      By default, all members of SYC are automatically subscribed to the newsletter. If you do not want to receive CompassNEWS at all, you can unsubscribe by Opting Out of delivery. To do so, check the box labeled "Compass NEWS - OPT OUT - DO NOT SEND"  to the right of your profile screen under the label "Opt-in Groups" and then click "Update Opt In Groups". Another way to opt-out of receiving the newsletter is to use the opt-out link at the bottom of the newsletter (“Click here to unsubscribe from further communications.”).

      If you decide to resubscribe, go to Members/MyProfile and uncheck the box labeled "Compass NEWS - OPT OUT - DO NOT SEND" and click "Update Opt In Groups". Other opt-in/opt-out groups are present in your member profile in Members/Member Directory, then click on the MyProfile tab to show the groups to which you belong.

      Still not receiving the CompassNEWS? Then send a message to and someone on the Information Technology Committee will sort out the problem.
