Communication Guidelines

Communication between the Foundation and the Allied Support Group member organizations is an integral part of achieving our mutual goals. Sharing information regarding activities of the Allied Support Group will occur via both specified and informal means. The Foundation will maintain an e-mail list serve which will includes members of the Allied Support Group and contact information for their respective representatives. Other Foundation or member organization informational issues will be communicated on an ad hoc basis among appropriate group representatives.
