Web access to the listserve (review and respond)
Email the moderator to add subscribers or to access the listserve from the web only (without receiving emails)
- All National Council members are automatically enrolled in the Member Listserve if you’ve provided your email address to the National Council.
- This is a member-only benefit. Only National Council staff and members will have access to your email address and posted materials.
- All emails that you receive from the National Council Member Listserve will include the words [national_council_listserve] in the subject line.
- Emails that you send will be distributed to the entire group, at the moderator's discretion, to invite responses and discussion. You will receive email transmissions and gain access to the listserve web page where you can find and respond to topics discussed previously.
Listserve etiquette and guidelines
- Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply, deleting extra text at the bottom of your email.
- State concisely and clearly the specific topic in the subject line. This allows others to respond more appropriately to your posting.
- Send messages such as "thanks for the information" or "me, too" to individuals—not to the entire list. Do this by using your e-mail application's forwarding option and typing in or cutting and pasting in the e-mail address of the individual to whom you want to respond.
- Include your email address with your signature so that members can contact you directly if they wish to discuss something that they do not want others to read.
- Do not challenge or attack others. The discussions on the lists are meant to stimulate conversation not to create contention.
- Do not post commercial messages. Contact people directly with products and services that you believe would help them.
