Member Listserv

Using a listserv is an excellent way for Forum task force and standing committee members to communicate with one another. If you are a member of a task force, committee, or other Forum group, you can send a message from your e-mail using the group’s listserv address (noted below) and the message will be distributed to all members of the group. However, only registered members of a listserv (i.e., only members of the group) can send messages via the listserv addresses below.
