The National Association of Legislative Information Technology (NALIT) listserv is an e-mail forum and information exchange for legislators and legislative staff who are interested in legislative information technology issues. NALIT listserv subscribers post messages to the list that are then sent out to all other subscribers to create an electronic discussion group. NCSL staff use the NALIT listserv to distribute the NALIT Newsletter and to post meeting announcements, agendas, and other association information.
Recent discussions on the NALIT listserv have focused on XML bill drafting systems, wireless networks, and e-mail policies, among many other issues. Some subscribers have posted survey questions on the listserv.
To subscribe to the NALIT Listserv, send an e-mail message to email@example.com and identify yourself, your legislative affiliation and your phone number, requesting a subscription to NALIT-L.
You will receive an e-mail message confirming your subscription and describing how to post messages and unsubscribe (e.g., subscribers should unsubscribe if using an e-mail autoresponder while on vacation.)
To post a message to the NALIT Listserv after you have subscribed, send an e-mail message to NALIT-L@NCSL.ORG with your questions or comments about legislative information technology. Include a brief but descriptive summary of your message in the subject line. Please include your name and contact information at the bottom of every message so others can contact you individually if they choose. Your message will be sent to all subscribers on the list.
Remember that replies to messages posted on the NALIT listserv will also be sent to all other subscribers. To reply privately to the person who posted a message, send a new message to the sender's e-mail address rather than replying to the listserv message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be taken off the NALIT listserv, send an email message to NALIT-Lemail@example.com and in the body of the message type: unsubscribe.
