The MNRS RIG membership communicates by listserv.  Listservs are similar to “group” email in that when you send something to the Listserv address, it is received by all subscribers assigned to the listserv. New and renewing members who choose to participate in a RIG will automatically be subscribed to the RIG’s Listserv by the Executive Office. The Listserv subscribers are updated bi-weekly so the membership is always current.

Have a RIG question?  Please contact Dr. Julie Vignato.
