The ADEA Section and Special Interest Group (SIG) Listservs are designed to facilitate communication among all subscribers in an electronic form. The lists may be used to inform group members about non-critical events and issues pertaining to the group.

The Listserv may not be used to advertise job openings, recruitment for business or any commercial advertising. If you are interested in advertising any of the previously mentioned items, you may contact our advertising representative, Tima Good, at (717) 505-9701 x182 or

For the life of the Listserv, it is understood that the posted opinion is the originators only and does not represent the policy, philosophy or practice of ADEA or its various sections.

Once you have joined an ADEA Section or SIG, you are automatically opted in to the respective Listserv for the group.

You will remain on the Listserv until you have opted out. To opt out, you must login to your ADEA member profile and update your contact preferences.

If your ADEA membership lapses, you will not be able to send or receive messages to the Listserv(s) you have subscribed to. You must first renew your ADEA membership to begin to send and receive messages again. All previous settings will be reinstated.

Summarize lengthy material and invite subscribers to contact you for the complete items. Avoid personal exchanges and promotion of commercial products and services.
