Here are some guidelines for writing to our mailing lists:

  1. Emails to a mailing list are sent out to all members of the list. Unless your email is specifically to the attention of a particular member, please address your message to the group at large. Remember that COBD and its programs and services are team efforts and everyone has a say in how the program is run.

  2. The purpose of a mailing list is to make sure that everyone knows what is going on within the scope of the list at all times. We encourage everyone to send emails via the mailing list. If you need to write to a specific staff member, simply put “Attn. name” in the subject of the message before the actual subject.

  3. Types of emails that should not be shared on the mailing list include:

A. Emails that contain confidential information that should not be sent to all the members of the mailing list.

B. Derogatory or offensive emails that put anyone down or attack anyone.

  1. Emails that do not follow the above guidelines may be reason for removal from the mailing list.
