In the Outlook global address list (address book) you will now find distribution lists for the standing committees. The distribution lists were based on the standing committee list from the President's Office. These distribution lists can be used by members of the various committees to more easily keep in touch. They can also be used by individuals to contact the committee as a whole. All committees in the global address list (address book) begin with the word "Committee" - and then are followed by the name of the committee.
If you are the chairperson of a committee, please check that the listing of your committee members is correct. This can easily be done by locating the committee in the global address list. The global address list can be accessed by using the address book - or the "To.." button when creating new email. Right mouse click on the committee name and choose properties. The list of members will be displayed. Please notify IT of any changes needed to your committee listing. Students who are members of committees are included in the distribution lists. If new members join your committee or individuals resign, please contact IT so that we can make modifications to the distribution list.
