It's Official....... The Announcement has been posted at weScrap!
Dear Members of WeScrap!
It is with great pleasure that I announce several exciting changes within the virtual and physical world of WeScrap. As many of you already know, Jessica Acs, President of WeScrap, is following her dream and her (second to scrapbooking of course) passion of pursuing a career in Zoology. Jess has recently moved from Vancouver to L.A., California and has enrolled in a two year program that will get her the proper certifications necessary to be considered for future employment in the field that she loves. During this time, although she will be still very much participating in WeScrap, Jess will not be able to commit to the level of dedication that is required to actually manage and run WeScrap on a day to day basis.
Jess, Brent and I have been working on solutions to this that would best suit the needs of the company and are now very pleased to announce that Allison Cope and Tara Thynne will officially take over Jess’ role effective immediately as Co-President’s of WeScrap! Both have demonstrated their level of commitment, knowledge and expertise in various leadership roles within WeScrap over the years. We have no doubt that together, they will be able to continue our goal of making WeScrap a fun, friendly place, to gather and share our passion for scrapbooking. Over the next few weeks you will begin to see announcements, redirection, new and exciting things take place as these two ladies have already come up with some great ideas on how they will help make us the BEST place to spend your valuable time. Congratulations to Allison and Tara and thank you for your dedication!
The second exciting announcement is that we have finally found our new home for the WeScrap Store! As you were aware, our products purchased from the WeScrap Store were being processed out of Canada adding substantial shipping costs for the majority of our membership. We are pleased to have Sarah Nolan taking on this new Vice President role leading up every aspect of purchasing, storing, fulfilling and shipping of all your favorite items. Located in Michigan, USA, Sarah brings years of experience to us having her own medium size business which includes a fulfillment center in an unrelated product line. Sarah has graciously offered us her time, space, and commitment to making sure that you have what you want, when you want it, at the best possible prices! Sarah also has some neat ideas that she will be exploring with everyone at WeScrap on identifying potential new ways we can collectively purchase ALL of our product through WeScrap at “almost” wholesale pricing through a group buying program. Imagine owning your own scrapbooking store! Congratulations to Sarah and please share your “most wanted” list with her as we start filling up the WeScrap Store!
We appreciate all those who have been involved with this process behind the scenes and we look forward to your continued support as we go through these changes. Each and every member of WeScrap is important in that we really believe that you provide the heartbeat of our business. Someone once said…we are the only scrapbooking community that is filled with ONLY positive energy! Wow! What a compliment! We do believe that our community is has the friendliest people, and under our new leadership team we know that it will only just keep getting better!Thanks everyone,Scott PaulWeScrap!
Yippeee............. I am really excited about this venture and working alongside my Best Friend Ally! Having Sarah run the store and take on the VP position is wonderful. Look for lots of fun and exciting things to come at weScrap!!
