Make Sure Your AAP Messages Get To Your Inbox

Here’s how to add perio.org to your address book

Has it been awhile since you’ve gotten an email blast from the AAP? The Academy sends its members at least two email periodicals per month, which means if you haven’t received any from us recently, it may be time to make sure the AAP has been added to your email program.

Due to the prevalence of spam email along with increased privacy concerns and updated antivirus software, many services are becoming more aggressive about blocking emails from organizations that send out messages to multiple email addresses.

To ensure delivery, please add info@perio.org and DoNotReply@connectedcommunity.org to your address book or contact list. Below are the two email services most commonly used by AAP members. If you don’t see your email service provider on this list, visit http://www.perio.org/whitelist for more.

If you have questions about your Academy email, contact Michele Schuman (telephone 800/282-4867 ext. 3208 or 312/573-3208; email micheles@perio.org).

How to check if your AAP email is in the “Spam” folder:

1. Click “Spam” along the left side of any Gmail page.

2. If you see any AAP email listed among the messages in this folder, check the box next to our email.

3. Click the “Not Spam” button along the top.

Outlook

1. Highlight a message from the Academy to add it to your “safe senders” list.

2. From the Actions tab, select the Junk E-Mail option and then the “Add Sender to Safe Senders List.”

3. Click on “OK” from the popup window.

We do not send you "spam"-please don't mark our messages this way

Occasionally an AAP member will accidentally mark an email message from the Academy as "spam." Along the top of many email services is a box thta states "report as spam." This box is located next to the "Archive" and "Delete" boxes, making it easy to mistakenly check the wrong one.

When an email from the Academy is reported as "spam," it can jeopardize the AAP's ability to deliver important news to you and other members about your specialty because oue email address is added to a "black list" by your email service provider, which results in automatically blocking messages from the AAP.

If you wish to stop receiving certain emails from the Academy, the best way to accomplish this is to simply click on "Unsubscribe," which is loctaed at the bottom of every email from the AAP. Doing this updates your account to prevent your email address from being included when the distribution lists are developed by AAP staff before an email is sent to members.

If you have questions about your Academy email, contact Michele Schuman (telephone 800/282-4867 ext. 3208 or 312/573-3208; email micheles@perio.org).

Perio.org receives awards

The Academy's newly redesigned perio.org received national recognition with two recent awards.

A silver 2013 W3 Award honored the mobile version of perio.org. The W3 Awards honor creative excellence on the web, and are judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals. The website's mobile design was provided by Bean Creative, the web design firm also responsible for the redesign of perio.org

Another recent award has honored AAP Connect, our virtual member community, which was recognized as having the "Most Successful Launch/Relaunch" for a mid-sized organization by Higher Logic. In September, the AAP relaunched its Open Forum discussion group, working with GrowthVine consultant Kelly Flowers to implement a communications strategy to help members discover, initiate, and engage in active discussions related to periodontics. Since then total logins to AAP Connect have almost doubled, and there has been a 45% increase in contributions by members to the conversations. Hogher Logic developed the community platform used by the Academy for AAP Connect, and serves more than 15 million individuals across the world.

"We looked at a combination of criteria [for the award]," explained Heather McNair, director of Client Success at Higher Logic, "including the amount of activity on the site, obstacles that were overcome, communications and marketing of the community site, and the systematic approach to the launch." She explained that one of the reasons the AAP was selected was because of the early engagement of our members, which demonstrates how quickly members have begun to use the site for its intended purposes. She added: "They're a great example of success!"
