NAWBO-SV-TALK: Connecting Members Electronically
Welcome to NAWBO-SV-TALK! NAWBO-SV sponsors this free e-mail list to provide an open forum for businesswomen in Silicon Valley and beyond to solicit and provide advice on issues and opportunities specific to building a successful business.
This group is managed by Yahoo Groups, an easy to use e-mail service provided by Yahoo. This list is for members and corporate partners of the Silicon Valley Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
The NAWBO-SV Community e-mail list http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nawbo_sv_talk2 is an unmoderated discussion where participants can discuss a wide range of issues such as:Please subscribe to the NAWBO–SV TALK and establish communications between our members. This can only add to the power of our NAWBO community.
Please refer any questions to Marit Fox, Moderator & Association Manager, NAWBO-SV, at email@example.com.
Subscribing to NAWBO-SV-TALK
This e-mail list has hundreds of participants. To keep the discussion as pertinent as possible to all, we ask that you follow these guidelines for posting and responding to messages:
1. Check the archives to see if your question has been answered recently before posting your own request.
2. Include clear subject titles. Give your postings a subject that’s meaningful to readers. For example, if you were looking for printer referral titling the e-mail as “requests: Printer Referral” would be better than “help!” This may not seem like a big deal, but for people who receive hundreds of messages a day, having relevant e-mail titles makes it easier to prioritize which e-mails to read first.
3. Sign your messages clearly. Please sign all messages with your full name and e-mail address. When processing e-mails for listservs, some e-mail readers strip off the e-mail address of the sender and leave only the listserv address. Including your name and e-mail allows all of us to reply to you privately.
4. Do not use “Reply All.” Many people on the list will likely have no interest in a specific topic. When someone posts a request for advice or opinions, reply to the original poster only. As a courtesy to the list, we ask the person who posts a message asking for advice or opinions to compile the answers and send ONE message back to the list to share the resources with all.
5. Do not use the list for general work solicitation. Everyone on the list is looking for work to sustain their business, so general posting saying, “I’m available and looking” or posting resumes (for yourself or others) is not allowed.
Also, we ask that you refrain from advertising your services and products on this list. If you would like to post messages of this type, then please subscribe to and send messages to the list of business opportunities. The Group’s home page is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nawbo_sv_opportunities for the second list.
6. No HTML or attachments. HTML and attachments can cause serious problems for people who subscribe to the list in digest format. If you plan to send a message to the list, make sure your e-mail software is set to send messages as plain text and not HTML or MIME documents.
Also, make sure the vCard and other e-business card functions are shut off. Finally, never attach files to your messages, as viruses often hide in attachments. Attachments are not saved by Yahoo!Groups with messages in the archives either.
7. Don’t post copyrighted articles without permission. We would be in violation of copyright laws if any of us posted complete articles, for example, for the San Jose Mercury News. If you want to bring our attention to a copyright-protected article, either write a summary of it, supply the URL for the original story, or quote a few sentences from it. Never post copyright-protected articles in full.
8. Don’t flame people who violate these rules or point out the violation to the whole list. We do have a person responsible for monitoring the list who will send private messages to people who violate these guidelines. Repeat violators will be removed from the list. If you are worried about a particular post or poster, send your concern to NAWBO-SV-TALKfirstname.lastname@example.org.
These guidelines are posted on the NAWBO-SV web site for reference. All new subscribers to the NAWBO-SV-TALK list will receive these guidelines in a welcome message. We will also send short, quarterly messages about the guidelines to remind participants of the nature and intentions of the list.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in following these guidelines. Observing them will help all of us make positive contributions to the community.
