Announcements List

The Announcements list provides a centralized place for SAA members to make announcements that have broad appeal, such as conference announcements, standards updates, surveys, and job announcements. All active members are automatically subscribed in "Daily Digest" mode. The list is moderated and used for single announcements, not discussion.

SAA hosts official email discussion lists for all boards, committees, task forces, and working groups. Access to these lists is restricted to group members.

SAA Fellows

SAA hosts an official email discussion list for Distinguished Fellows. Access to this list is restricted to SAA Fellows.
