Pre-Conference Poll #3: Use of the GPOP Listserv

Leave a comment

At the KeyboardWe established our national listserv at Douglas College in 2010 and have since transitioned it to Langara College, where GPOP Director Diana Falcon and her colleagues manage it on members’ behalf.

Shared Expertise at Your Fingertips

If you and your Chair or President are thinking it would be helpful to learn how another institution approached a certain undertaking, ask your peers. Looking for a template? Rather than reinventing the wheel, turn to your listserv. Members will naturally exercise discretion in what they share and communicate, but you will find them to be as generous with information as is appropriate.

You can use the GPOP listserv to connect with other members and ask questions, seek the benefit of experience and share best practices.

Listserv Protocol

We recommend that members insert “Governance Query” or “President’s Office Query” in email subject lines, to reflect the focus of a query.

This is the third of our 2016 pre-conference polls, and it’s important to have members’ input.
