By joining SAAL you will gain access to the SAA-Leaders Listserv. Posting to the SAA-Leaders listserv is a great way to connect with colleagues, pose questions to gather resources or information, promote assessment events or job postings, and more. You can catch up on hot topics or see if your question has been asked to the listserv previously by reviewing the listserv archive.
If you need assistance with the listserv (i.e. changing your email address, not being able to send a message, etc.), please contact Darby Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To access the online listserv archive homepage, first you will need to set up a LISTSERV password. To set up your password, click on this link: https://listserv.tamu.edu/cgi-bin/wa?GETPW1. You will be prompted to enter your email address and choose a password. After submitting your password, you will receive a “Command Confirmation Request” email instructing you to confirm your password. Once your password is set, you can access the archives by visiting the SAA-Leaders LISTSERV homepage: https://listserv.tamu.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A0=SAA-Leaders. The archives are listed in chronological order with the most recent messages at the top. You can also search the archives by selecting “Search Archives” under “options” on the right side of the screen.
If you wish to receive the digested version of the postings (not each email as it arrives), just send a SET SAA-LEADERS DIGEST command to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.TAMU.EDU.
Sometimes the listserv generates lots of conversation that can clutter our inbox. If you do not want to have the digest version of the listserv, you might think about setting up a SAAL folder with a rule to send anything from SAA-LEADERS@LISTSERV.TAMU.EDU to a separate folder. In Outlook, click on the Rules tab to create a new rule. Then, you can check that folder when you have time.
You may leave the list at any time by sending a "SIGNOFF SAA-LEADERS" command to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.TAMU.EDU.
If you are trying to send a message to the list, but get a message that you can’t, it could be that your campus email is not what you registered with (you may have several aliases). If you have that problem, let me know. I can change your address.
In order to be added to the listserv, people have to complete the membership form before they can be manually added to the listserv. This is also a way to update your contact information. If people, meet the membership criteria, they can complete a brief registration at: http://studentaffairsassessment.org/join.
