The email group was set up in 2006, with the approval of the Committee, so that Ilkley Harriers may easily email others with club-related news. It is just one of many channels of communication for Ilkley Harriers. It's like a "group" in your PC's email program, except that it's held centrally: any group member can email all others in the group by simply addressing an email to <thegroupname>.
Only current members of Ilkley Harriers may apply to join the email group, by contacting Paul (here).
What's it for? Here are some ideas ...
Since the advent of the Ilkley Harriers Forums, and our Facebook page, it may be better to reserve the email group for 'fairly urgent' messages that you need to send out to fellow members straight away (rather than waiting for them to read it on the Forums).
Is it secure?
The group is a closed list in that membership is only open to current members of Ilkley Harriers who are prepared to abide by the rules of the group.
Email addresses are 'secure' (though they are visible to email recipients if you post an email to the group) and the group should not be afflicted with email posted from outside the group.
We do not publish the name of the group here (to help avoid non-members and web pests trying to join the group) - it's on the inside cover page of your Ilkley Harriers newsletter.
Rules? Let's not have too many written rules and guidelines, just enough to make this thing work ...
Any current member of Ilkley Harriers may apply to join the group by contacting Paul via the current web site contact email (here) - if your email address is particularly cryptic you'll need to reveal who you are (and we may need to check).
By default, all members will be set up to receive every email that is sent to the group, as it is sent. Note you do NOT need a Google account to be in the group. Alternative subscription types are:
Group members may unsubscribe at any time.
Contact Paul if you'd like to change your subscription type, or if you have any more questions, or problems.
