Announcement: The Viability of creating an "Announce Only" List for Project-wide correspondence 6 August 2014
Over the last few days there has been much discussion on the
USGenWeb-Discuss list about the viability of an "Announce only" list
for *all* USGenWeb Project members to be mandatorily subscribed to.
This list would be used for Project-wide announcements by the Advisory
Board, Election Committee and potentially other Standing and Special
Committee announcements in the future.

I have taken the liberty of contacting the programmer of our Election
software and have ascertained that the list-serve function is in place
in place for us. He is working in conjunction with me and our
Election Chair to work out the next steps to subscribe our members.
