Do you want to get these messages in “real time” but don’t want to keep checking the web? You can use an “rss reader” to watch the announcements, but if you don’t want to make that leap, go to https://www.aauwnc.org and look for the “Get updates by e-mail” link in the “Join the Discussion” section near the bottom of the grey, right-hand column. Click that, then enter your e-mail address and click “Subscribe”, and you’ll get them as they are posted. We still do use the e-mail list, firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail email@example.com if you are getting this message second hand), but more and more information is getting posted to the news system so we don’t have to clutter your inbox.
