Indiana 811 Members:
As 2010 comes to a close, I'd like to take this moment to reflect on the year and the many accomplishments we've made together. Despite the ongoing recession and its effects on new construction, I’m pleased to report that as of the end of November, inbound requests to Indiana 811 are up 4.5% percent from last year.
Any increase during times such as these should not be taken lightly, since it is a reflection of the work we all have done to increase awareness of 811. As you’ll see throughout this final edition of The Dirt, the combined efforts of Indiana 811 and members has led to millions of free media impressions across the state, exposure at dozens of events, and unique sponsorships and partnerships.
The number of Indiana 811 members continues to grow, surpassing 1,000 earlier this year, and providing additional ambassadors for the 811 message in 2011.
Speaking of 2011, please be sure to check out the left side bar of this newsletter for information about a presentation of our 2011 communications plan on Jan. 12.
Happy holidays to you and yours,
Executive Director, Indiana 811
