The VPA listserv is a convenient way for members throughout the state to engage in dialogue and share information on topics, research and news relevant to the mental health field. Thanks to the APA Practice Organization’s (APAPO) generosity in providing the resources for this listserv, we now have the convenience of automatically communicating with several colleagues at once by sending just one message to just one e-mail address.
If you are a newcomer to listserv communication, it won’t take you long to discover how useful this service can be or to understand why these guidelines contribute to a climate of efficiency and effectiveness. If you haven’t already, please give the listserv a try! If you are new member, try sending a message to introduce yourself. We will be glad to have you join in on the discussion. Please don’t hesitate to give the office a call for assistance or if you have any questions.
VPA encourages diversity in views and opinions and would like all members to feel welcome and respected on the listserv. By utilizing this service, you are agreeing to adhere to the following rules and guidelines:
Please note that replying to a listserv email will send a reply to only the sender of the message to which you are replying. If you wish to send a reply that the entire listserv can read, please select “reply all” in your email service.
Please do not add attachments to your emails unless requested or unless necessary for the information you are sharing. The attachment of any materials should comply with copyright laws and the requirements of items1 and 2, above.
Please limit your editorial comments when sharing any news, research or other content that may be politically-charged or carry political overtones. Please treat your listserv posts in the same way you would handle a face-to-face conversation with a colleague with differing views or phrase things in a manner you would use when participating in a conference's panel discussion. We all want to see professional courtesy and civility maintained, with each member taking personal responsibility for this.
At the discretion of the executive director, any member may be unsubscribed for violation any of the above rules.
If at any time you wish to unsubscribe from the listserv, please e-mail VPA directly at email@example.com or call VPA at (802) 229-5447.
