With over 200 members currently subscribed, CSDA’s email listserv is a powerful communication tool for CSDA members.

Do you want to get feedback from other districts about an issue but don’t want to make 25 phone calls? If so, you should be subscribed to the CSDA listserv. CSDA’s email listserv is a powerful communication tool for CSDA members.  It makes it easy for our members to share information and ideas, and ask questions and get answers from those most qualified to answer: colleagues who have been through the same experiences. Once you are subscribed, you can send your question or issue to one email address and it will automatically be delivered to everyone else on the list. There are currently over 200 members subscribed. That is a wealth of information!

Do you want to find out what software other districts are using? How they screen their employees? Set their fees? The listserv is a quick way to get responses from all over the state.
