English (USA)

A national listserv for Summer Session administrators has been established by the North American Association of Summer Sessions (NAASS) and Washburn University. This electronic bulletin board was created at the suggestion of many at the 1994 NAASS Conference in Boston.

This Listserv has something for everyone in Summer Session. For the veteran administrator, the Listserv may be used to gather information on how to switch from one system to another or find out what people's experience has been with a particular program.

For the new administrator, the Listserv may be used to ask questions of hundreds of other administrators who understand their particular situation. Quality
advice is a rare commodity for the new administrator, and a listserv can be a non-threatening way of asking basic questions.

Many of us work on campuses where we are the only Summer Session administrator. The Listserv may be used to network with people who understand our situation and to connect with colleagues nationally.

For the users of the Internet, the practical application of a listserv
will be obvious. For newcomers to Internet bulletin boards you will
find this listserv as easy to use as your electronic mail. Once you
subscribe to the listserv, any notice posted on the network will be delivered to you automatically. There is no cost for the subscription.

That mail file will simultaneously be delivered to everyone who is subscribed
to the board. Once the membership receives your note, individuals may
send directly to you information which you have requested, or may respond
to the entire membership as well.

National listservs give a national perspective to our local problems.
They are wonderful and very efficient informational gathering tools.
Issues that may be addressed on the Listserv are as varied as the issues
that face our departments on a daily basis. Issues such as decentralization, private vs. public institutional structures, institutional restructuring, international programs, IVR registration
systems, pay scales to faculty and marketing strategies are but a few
issues that may be presented on the network. The interconnected structure gives you fast response to pressing issues.

Please join us in an electronic community as we work together to make our individual programs better.
