- Western Section Constant Contact Announcement List: The Western Section uses Constant Contact to maintain a mailing list of current and recent past members and attendees of Section Conferences, workshops and events. We periodically send out our electronic newsletter and announcements of upcoming events and other official news related to the Western Section. All members are automatically added and Conference and workshop attendees will also be added. If you are not a member, you may join our General Interest mailing list here.
From 2004 to 2014, the Western Section used a Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TWSWSMembers/) to share announcements of Section sponsored workshops, conferences and training and other official news and information related to the Western Section. Use of this list has been discontinued, but the Yahoo Group remains online for an archive of past information.
- Dead Wood Listserver: The TWS Western Section sponsored a symposium entitled ” The Ecology and Management of Dead Wood in Western Forests ” in November 1999. The target audience was all resource professionals working in timbered environments. An outcome of that event was the need to promote 1) a greater understanding of the topic, 2) meaningful research, monitoring, and reporting, 3) discussions regarding management objectives, and 4) a new synthesis on dead wood management. An important tool in achieving these ends is the creation of a list-serve to support these discussions, an effort which was supported by many of the attendees. The Western Section is pleased to announce that the listserver has been established. To join, send an e-mail email@example.com or go tohttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/dead_wood/.
