BPNA email list is open to members

The email address is

We discussed this at our meeting last week and decided to try it for a month. We've changed the setting on our group email list, so that any member can email the list. Until now, it's been restricted to a small group of BPNA officers and interested members, and everything has been posted through the blog at We'll continue to post items through the blog, and these will arrive as usual.

You have to be a member of BPNA to email the list. Messages posted directly to the list will not appear on the blog. We'll continue to add members directly, as we do now, so we shouldn't be exposed to junk mail from this.

Rather than set up policies ahead of time, we agreed to open it up and see how it goes. In general, please keep your emails related to topics of neighborhood interest. If you have a neighborhood business or service, feel free to email the group to let people know about it.

Be aware that you can reply to either the sender or the whole group. If you feel like you are getting too many messages from the group, you can elect to have them compiled and sent as one message per day. If we start to get that many, though, we may want to talk about stronger guidelines.

We'll talk about this at the next meeting. Let's see how it goes!
