Discussion lists can be used to share news, events, newsletters, job opportunities, calls for papers, awards nominations, and so much more.

To post a discussion list, you will need to be a member of the section. Join a Section Here.

How to Post to a Discussion List

There are three ways to post to a discussion list:

1. By sending an email to a Section’s unique email address. You can find a list of those address HERE.

2. Creating a post to the discussion list message board

  • To post a discussion list, you will first need to be a member of the Section. Once you are a member, find the relevant discussion list by logging in to https://aalschools.connectedcommunity.org/home with your email and password from your institution. Click on the create button in the top right and discussion thread to create a post. This will post and send an email to the members of the section or “group” you select. In these posts you can add files that will end up in the Discussion List Library.

3. Simply replying to an email thread

  • When you reply make sure to update the outgoing email address to the Section’s unique email address as it won’t always automatically populate.
