SSC Email Lists

Three Distinct Lists

  1. [a-ssc] Occasional announcements that must be sent to all ssc members. There is no "unsubscribe" option, and this is a moderated list.
  2. [g-ssc] Announcements of general interest to all SSC members. Members are included in this list by default, but may choose to opt out. This is a moderated list.
  3. [d-ssc] Unmoderated email list that is open to all members. Members must opt in to the list to send emails or post to the list. Messages from nonmembers are vetted before posting.
