Tips for joining a LISTSERV

Find an organization you're interested in and see if they have a LISTSERV. Before you sign up, be aware of how the organization will use your contact information (e.g., providing your information to other parties, marketing emails, etc).

Annual Reports

Thanks to the Web, it is easy and inexpensive for organizations to share annual reports online - usually in the form of a downloadable PDF. However, currency and ease of access can be affected by the resources available to the organization. Be aware there are no uniform standards for providing online access to annual reports and similar organizational publications. Not all organizations have a link labeled "Annual Reports" - you may have to hunt under different headings to find what you need.
