Hello everyone and thank you for signing up for the Freelists.org listserve.  
This is in beta version and I appreciate everyone's patience in this process.  
Just to remind you, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and not an 
Information Specialist.  So, if there are problems with this process, I can 
talk to you all day about them but maybe not fix them. :)  I am expecting that 
once we put our heads together, we will be able to move in all the right 

The Communications and Technology Committee has moved forward tremendously with 
our last Coalition meeting.  

Our identified objectives for this Committee are to test the Freelists process 
and see if it is suited to our needs.  We are looking for:

ease of use
the ability to contact individuals on the list privately
the ability to break topics down into categories
a calender function if possible

The possibility of locating a better list group was discussed as well as the 
possibility of recruiting students to assist in the process.  Once IT support 
has been identified, a web page can be created that will be available to the 
public on the Internet.

This Monday, the group thought about how to test the Freelists' functionality 
and effectiveness.  This is a crucial piece as the Coalition does not currently 
have an efficient way to send out meeting notices, training opportunities, 
legislative updates, and other events in the mental health arena.

It was suggested that members of each of our currently forming standing 
committees use the Freelists forum to communicate with one another.  Not only 
would this enable us to test the Freelists functionality but it would create 
the ability for every active member of on the Coalition to observe and 
participate in Committee discussions.
