GCD E-mail Archive Guidelines

Hello members and friends of the GCD, While everybody is waiting for the ONLINE INDEX to come back online and some of as can't wait for the excitement of San Diego, I can announce some progess with the e-mail archive. After some lengthy and meticulous discussion, the Board has agreed on the Guidelines which where voted by a 7:2 majority. A vote about an amendment followed, which was rejected by 7:2. So, the final wording can be posted to the list and its members. The GCD Email Archive Guidelines will be added to the website in the near future. The archive itself will be set-up soon as well. We will keep you posted! All the best & keep on indexing!

Matthias Hofmann GCD Board Secretary & Reservation Coordinator
