(The following is an excerpt from the Collaborative, Participatory, and Empowerment Evaluation TIG web site):
Our community has its own listserve - a distribution list that enables us to talk to each other. You are welcome to join us. The listserve is called:
If you have any questions about the list contact David Fetterman at email@example.com.
To subscribe to the free listserve, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following message:
subscribe email@example.com (username@hostname)
Do not add anything to the message (including thanks) - it is an automated system.
To unsubscribe from the listserve, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following message:
unsubscribe email@example.com (username or email account@hostname)
You can subscribe and unsubscribe on your own and as needed - like when you have a light or heavy load of email. Keep in mind we do not want to overload or clutter the email with small notes - like thank you notes for thank you notes. However, it is designed to help us discuss issues from diverse points of view and parts of the globe. It is a self-generating listserve; however moderators have volunteered to initiate and guide discussions as needed. Job postings are welcome, as are relevant publications.
Our TIG community has its own listserv- a distribution list that encourages and allows us to discuss issues as they relate to the entire spectrum of minority issues in evaluation. Although coordinated by the Minority Issues TIG, the list is open for use by anyone.
People can subscribe themselves to an open majordomo list by sending an electronic mail message to majordomo@Virginia.edu with the subject:
and the text of the message:
where mievaltig is the name of the list to which they want to subscribe.
(Note: these are two commands, on two lines. They must appear as given without extraneous characters or spaces.)
II. Sending Messages
Most members and owners want to send messages to their list. They need to address their message to:
where mievaltig is the name of the majordomo list of which they are a member.
They should include a subject that describes the topic of their message and then include their message. (If you have any questions, feel free to contact Rodney Hopson at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
