* After Signing Up
After completing your membership
sign up, please read the following information:
Single Volunteers of Calgary has two mailing
lists. The first list is used for event information and updates only
and is mandatory to join.
The second list is an open "chat"
mailing list and can be used by members for any discussions you would
like to carry on ( please keep the subjects tame! ). You do not have to
join the "chat" list, however it does have a way for
other chat members to e-mail you, while keeping your e-mail address
anonymous and sometimes informal outings are organized with other chat
We use the "svcal" YahooGroups list to send out bulk emails to
the entire group. We will still use usa.net to send out individual emails
(such as event confirmations).
This list is mandatory.
This list is optional.
Yahoo groups will send you an email immediately asking to confirm your
request to subscribe. You must reply to this message to continue your
signup. After this reply, you will get a message saying your request to
join svcal or svcal-chat has been approved. (this could take around a week,
as it done manually by the coordinator, as below)
Your signup on YahooGroups will be verified against our database and approved
by the membership coordinator. It is important that you use the same email
address to signup with YahooGroups as you used on the member signup form -
otherwise we won't be able to find you in our database.
After you have signed up for svcal and svcal-chat, you may wish to get
an Yahoo groups web login. The above sign ups, are e-mail only. To view
archived messages, control how e-mail is delivered and contact other
chat members, you must have a Yahoo groups web id. Click here after you
have joined svcal and/or svcal-chat and you will find the instruction on
how to get an id and link your memberships to it.
Note: if you have any trouble
signing up for either mailing list please contact
us. It is important that you sign up on the "svcal" mailing
list to receive event information from SVCalgary.
