In response to your comments and suggestions, we have created a listserv for you to use to share your best thoughts and ideas about attendance - from development of policy to definition of terms to attendance incentives to documentation. You may also request feedback from all subscribers as well. Anyone may subscribe and, best of all, this service is free!
What is a Listserv?
A Listserv is a way of asking for, providing and receiving information about a topic that is near and dear to the people who are subscribers. The Attendance Listserv - NY-Attend - was established so that people who are interested in attendance (for whatever reason) can connect to other like-minded folk.
Once you have subscribed, you can send a message via e-mail to everyone who is subscribed with just one address. Likewise, responses and reactions to your "posting" go out to everyone on the list. Unlike a chat room which occurs in "real time" (i.e. postings and replies happen at the same time you are typing), the listserv information is posted and can be accessed whenever you get around to it.
Note: you can also reply to an individual if you choose by replacing the listserv name (in the "To:" field) with that person's e-mail. Sometimes you might not want to share your thoughts with the entire group.
Now that you have an idea of the possibilities of the NY-Attend Listserv - subscribe!
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address. Generally, requests are honored within a week. If you do not receive a notice that you have been subscribed, try sending the e-mail again.
