Confused by email distribution lists, or unsure what list to use when sending a message?

Many of us are.

Navigating these lists is a bit like being lost in the country and getting driving directions from a local. He can’t tell you the name of the road to turn on, but it’s just beyond a big tree.

In other words, after a while, you get it, but explaining it to someone else is a different story.

Following the August 23-24 All-Staff Meeting in Sacramento, we heard loud and clear that it was time to spring – or in this case – fall-clean our email lists to simplify the options, rename them or simply be more descriptive. We’re also creating a One Team list to be used when a message needs to go to the federated team.

As with most technological initiatives, it’s a bit more complicated than one would think. However, we’re happy to report that work is currently underway and we hope to have it substantially completed by Thanksgiving, along with a glossary and guidelines for use.

Big One Team tanks to Stacy Arashiro in the CHA Information Services department for leading this work.
