PACDL Listserv FAQs
With the adoption of a new listserv technology, PACDL has completed its Association’s major technology upgrades set forth in its three-year strategic plan. Those upgrades included: 1) instituting file sharing and regular data back-ups to the cloud, 2) installing a secured internet service and a firewall, 3) hardwiring of the office computers, 4) sourcing an association management software system to allow the members to self-manage their membership information and directory data, 5) relaunching the PACDL website, and 6) adding SSL security to PACDL’s entire website to allow online member application and renewals and CLE registrations.
PACDL offers other community engagments. Most recently, as part of PACDL’s website relaunch, PACDL instituted web-based forums for those individuals that prefer a web-based communication channel. Members who prefer to use the forums must log in as a member on PACDL’s website to participate in a forum. Staff automatically adds all new members to the general forum. We have chosen to offer both communication options and recognize that PACDL’s listserv will likely dominate and continue to prove its overall member value. PACDL also uses social media such as Facebook to link with its criminal defense lawyer community.
In 2017, the Board of Directors adopted a social media policy and listserv guidelines. It can be found on our website here. Please be sure to review the policy and its prohibitions against posting inquiries for nonmembers, advertising other provider CLEs, making off-topic requests, and sharing information posted on the listserv.
