As I announced last weekend, the DCHAS-L e-mail list is being moved to the Princeton LISTSERV Server. Its new address is dchas-l **At_Symbol_Here** and is effective immediately. Please change the entry in your e-mail address book to reflect this change. The previous Weill Cornell address will be monitored for about one month before being made obsolete.

As part of the move, the list membership is being reset to reflect the current Divisional membership roster provided by the ACS. This could mean that some address changes previously made on the list will be lost. If you prefer to receive DCHAS e-mail at a different address, in DIGEST format, or not at all, please contact me at secretary**At_Symbol_Here** and I will assist you with making appropriate changes to your subscription. Similarly, if you don't receive DCHAS-L e-mail tomorrow, let me know for help in addressing this concern.

For the benefit of people who would like a review of the list's purpose and expectations, I have appended an updated version of the list's welcome message below. Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Thanks for your interest in DCHAS!

- Ralph

Welcome to DCHAS-L!

DCHAS-L is the e-mail list of the Division of Chemical Health and Safety of the American Chemical Society. It is intended to facilitate the conduct of division business and provide the opportunity for members ask other members technical questions. To send e-mail to the Division's membership (about 1500 chemical health and safety professionals), use the DCHAS-L**At_Symbol_Here** address.

List membership is for division members and, on a six month trial basis, non-members interested in divisional activities. This list is moderated to ensure that discussions do not stray from its intended purpose, but no technical review of the material on the list should be inferred from this editorial process.

As this list is a public activity of the Division of Chemical Health and Safety, we expect that list discussions will be conducted in a professional tone. Information presented on the list is provided by the person writing the e-mail based solely on the information given in the question they are responding to. For this reason, e-mail list postings should not be considered professional advice, but rather helpful hints on issues to consider in addressing the question.

In this context, people who respond to a listserv posting should think carefully about what they write and what the impact might be if their words are taken out of context. While all are encouraged to have a free exchange of information, those who participate in these discussions have a responsibility to consider the impact of their response.

The list is managed by Divisional secretary, Ralph Stuart . List traffic can be as high as 15 messages/day. If you prefer to receive all of the day's postings in a single e-mail, you can sign up for the DIGEST format. Contact Ralph for assistance with this.

Thanks for your interest in the Division of Chemical Health and Safety!
