Did you want me to post a message about the D6 GIS Coordinator position? William Walter, GISP Sr. Group Manager, Applied Technologies ATKINS From: urisa-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:urisa-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Wendy Nelson Sent: Monday, April 23, 2012 2:18 PM To: urisa@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [urisa] Welcome to URISA Connect The URISA Board welcomes you to the URISA Connect Listserv, a new member resource that adds value to your URISA membership. You have been subscribed to the listserv because you are a URISA member. Only URISA members can be subscribed to the listserv. If you determine at some point that you don't wish to continue your listserv subscription, you can easily unsubscribe at the link at the bottom of this message. That unsubscribe link is posted on the URISA web home page, as well, for easy access at any time. You can also control how you receive messages from the Listserv, either via individual messages or by daily or weekly digests. You will also have access to the Listserv archives, which will become a valuable membership resource in its own right. The listserv is a way for any URISA member to send an email message to all URISA members at once. Such a message could be used to ask a question about how other URISA members handle a particular technical or managerial GIS issue. Answers should be directed to the questioner, who is asked to compile and summarize the answers and submit back to the listserv for the benefit of the entire membership. In this way, the listserv can be used as a closed discussion forum for topics and questions of general interest to the membership that fall within the purview of our mission and objectives. The Board might use the listserv from time to time to gauge member opinion on issues or questions that the Board is considering. Access to member ideas, questions, concerns, and issues can help the Board refine the URISA Advocacy Agenda and be more effective in advocating for issues of importance to the membership. There are some ground rules for using the listserv. The Board established a listserv policy in anticipation of bringing the listserv on line. The entire policy can be found at: http://www.urisa.org/listservpolicy The policy in part says that users will: a. Be clear and concise; b. Support the goals and policies of our organization; and c. Be professional, courteous, and relevant to our membership. The listserv is not for the advancement of private enterprise, where the value of the URISA listserv and its members are leveraged for non-URISA benefit. The Board believes that more appropriate resources exist in other venues to promote products for business purposes. If the use of the listserv is abused by any member or member organization, their access to the listserv may be restricted or revoked. The following uses of the listserv have been approved by the Board: a. All URISA-related business as determined by the staff, Officers and Directors; b. Voluntary on-line survey requests that are directed toward URISA and its primary public sector constituents of "states, provinces, commonwealths, territories, protectorates, tribal affiliations, regional, county, and municipal governments, and similarly recognized civil jurisdictions"; c. Job announcements and recruitment of potential employees for organizations represented by the membership; d. Requests by members to obtain focused and timely information from their peers to assist their own efforts; and e. The distribution of news and educational materials that is relevant to the geospatial community. Send an email to the list using urisa@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:urisa@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> You may adjust your email preferences (set to Digest delivery or unsubscribe), visit: http://www.freelists.org/list/urisa You can also unsubscribe by sending email to urisa-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:urisa-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx%20> with "unsubscribe" in the Subject. Questions about the URISA Listserv, comments on performance, or questions about subscribing should be sent to info@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:info@xxxxxxxxx> The URISA Board is looking forward to the discussion!
