Email List

Club Email Etiquette

  • Email questions or announcements appropriate for the ENTIRE club.
  • Include your name and call sign at the bottom of each email.
  • Send messages such as “thanks for the information” or “me, too” to individuals “off list”–not to the entire list.
  • Messages to enroll in classes or workshops should also be replied to individuals “off list”–not to the entire list.
  • Do not send administrative messages, such as “remove me from the list” to everyone. To unsubscribe from the list, follow the directions at the bottom of the club email message.
  • Avoid frequent reminders about repeating events. For example, if a class is 7 sessions, mention the series early on, and then right before the first session–not every session thereafter. Or, if it’s a weekly event, limit reminders to once a month.
  • Keep subject lines close to the topics being discussed.
  • Do not steal topics by talking about something not related to the subject line. If need be, start a new subject.
