Each RIG has it's own Listserv and LinkedIn page.  

The difference between a Listserv and LinkedIn is that you must open the LinkedIn web page to view posts -- whereas information posted to a listserv comes directly to a persons email account.

A Listserv is similar to a "group" email. When something is sent to the Listserv address, it is received by all subscribers assigned to the listserv. New and renewing members who choose to volunteer on a RIG will automatically be subscribed to the RIG's Listserv by Staff. Those who do not renew their dues with automatically be unsubscribed. The Listserv subscribers are updated weekly so it is always current.  Click any of the above RIG's to find the Listserv for that RIG.

LinkedIn is website that allows you to post information and thoughts that only subscribers (or other members of your RIG) can view.  Click any of the above RIG's to find the LinkedIn page for that RIG.  Click the link and click the "JOIN" button on the top right.
