SIGBI News Briefing – 19 June 2020

SIGBI PROGRAMME DATABASE – We are aware that some Programme Action Officers have been experiencing issues with the SIGBI Programme Database, in that the fields in Step 2 (The Story of your Project) have been missing parts of your reports. If this has happened to you, then please be advised that this issue has now been fixed, and reports will come through in their entirety provided the character counts provided are adhered to.

Please remember, when entering Programme Reports, to put one project per report. Think of the end product. If you have raised funds for a charity, then it is the benefitting charity that will determine which P/SDG(s) the project should be reported under. Therefore, more than one “activity” raising funds for a particular charity can be reported on one report, but activities for different charities/beneficiaries should be reported separately, to ensure that they are listed under the correct P/SDG(s). Thank you.

SIGBI DAY OF ACTION TOOLKIT – Please note the item in the SIGBI News Briefing about the SIGBI Day of Action Toolkit, and note that the toolkit also includes a template Press Release for use by your Club. Use the social media messages on your Club/Region/NA/Network social media platforms as well as individual members. Note that a survey will be circulated after the SIGBI Day of Action to assess the reach of the Federation, although it will only be sent to Clubs/Regions/NAs/Networks, not to individual members.
