Member Profile Update March 28

As of noon today we have had 5,682 members update their profiles. We are approaching one-third of the 16,000 members targeted through this initiative.

The web site has been experiencing an average of 10,434 visitors per day during the past fourteen days. Not everyone is visiting to update their profiles. Many visitors are looking for information on membership, training and employment.

We are greatly encouraged by the level of interest in matters pertaining to Qalipu and the number of members who have already successfully updated their profiles. If you or someone you know hasn’t taken the time to do the update, please make the effort to do so and encourage others to do so as well.

We need accurate information in order to be able to contact you and to create our voter’s list.


Qalipu Member Profiles

As of March 23rd 3,419 Qalipu members have updated their membership profiles thereby ensuring their information is up to date. That is over 15% of registered members. Spread the word to family, friends and all Qalipu members you know. Remind them to update their Membership Profile.

Qalipu is in the process of establishing a Voter’s List for the first ever election for the new Band as well as building a picture of its workforce. That’s why it is so important to update your profile. Do your part to make Qalipu a success!

During the week ofVisitors by Day of Week, March 12-18, 2012 March 12-18 we had 3,859 unique visitors to our site. Members have been busy visiting the site every day of the week with most of them visiting on the weekend. The chart graphically shows the number of visitors each day.



Our callers have been hearing some very positive comments during the past week. Some members have said:

I am

• excited about the services after all these years of waiting

• using the Internet for the first time to update my profile

• glad the band is reaching out to its members

• excited that this has finally become a reality

• amazed by the number of people that are a part of this band

 The lady works on the database1-800 number is very nice.

 This is wonderful. I have been wondering how we can get updates and information about the band.

 Update your profile and tell your friends, family and other Qalipu members to do the same.



An E-Mail Address is Important

Callers are actively dialing members this week encouraging them to login to the new Membership database to update their profiles. The profile asks you to enter an e-mail address. This is needed so that Qalipu can e-mail you information on programs and services, update you on new initiatives, and generally keep you up-to-date on the progress we are making as the new Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band (QMFNB). You will also need you e-mail should you forget the password to your Profile.

If you don’t currently have an e-mail address you can get one free at any of the sites listed below. Once you have your e-mail address, please update that information in your profile.

If you don’t have an email, free email accounts may be created at online services such as:

2. Gmail by Google

3. Yahoo Email

4. Hotmail by Microsoft

5. ICloud by Apple for those with Macs or iOS devices
