AMS Listserv

A listserv is an automated mailing list to which you may subscribe in order to receive regular messages about AMS activities such as system availability or downtime schedules, new procedures and policies or information about newly available programs..

If you have changed departments and had a subsequent e-mail address change you should unsubscribe from the list using your old e-mail address and re-subscribe with the new address. This will not occur automatically as we do not know you’ve changed your e-mail address unless you tell us.

When you perform the subscribe routine, as described below, an automated instruction is sent to the manager of the list with your request for inclusion. The list manager acknowledges your request and accepts your subscription. At this point you will receive confirmation of your membership.
