MAPPA Listserv

By on April 12, 2016

The MAPPA Listserv is a service available to members.  It is dedicated to the discussion of any topic of interest to those engaged in the management of campus facilities for colleges and universities.

Expected topics should include issues relating to the operations or maintenance of campus facilities, planning or construction of campus facilities, or management issues relating to facilities personnel, job openings at universities and colleges and other events of interest to MAPPA members.

MAPPA Listserv Etiquette

§ Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information that everyone can benefit from.

§ Include a signature tag on all messages.   Include your name, affiliation, location, and e-mail address.  Please refrain from including graphics or favorite quotes in the signature tag.

§ State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting.

Instead, use the moderator’s e-mail link ([email protected]) to request removal from this list.  If you are changing e-mail addresses, please advise the list moderator to remove you from the list and ask to rejoin with your new e-mail address.
