Hello Everyone,

I thought that with the recent discussions that we had on being a single 
parent and women in the workforce, we could have more scheduled discussions 
over the listserv to help increase participation in the group.

Starting in April, we will be having two scheduled discussions per month 
over the listserv.  I will send out an email the first and third monday of 
each month to the group over a topic that relates to being a non-traditional 

This should be fun and interesting for everyone in the group!   We have set 
some rules for the discussions and here they are:

1)  When participating in a discussion please respond to the listserv 
address (ntso at shsu.edu) rather to my address or other people who are 
participating in the discussion.  This way the entire group can read the 
responses and everyone can take part in the discussion.

2) When talking about personal life situations, lets try to focus on 
education and work experience, unless the topic directly rates to personal 
home situations (for example, if the topic were about how to get a four year 
old to sleep at night then it would be appropriate to talk about personal 
life outside of education and work).

3) From time to time the topics might be more personal (for example, if we 
are discussing being in a bad relationship).  If this is the case, then the 
writer should place (sensitive) in the subject line to give the readers a 
warning as to how the message is rated.

4) Lets keep the discussions respectful and clean, and have fun with this 
opportunity to share experiences and talk over the listserv.

The discussions can take place over the listserv until the next one is 

Just as a reminder, because of the increase in activity over the listserv 
you might want to visit the NTSO website (www.shsu.edu/~org_ntso) and select 
the digest option.  This will allow  you to receive all of the daily NTSO 
emails as one digest email.  If you have any questions about changing to 
this option then just let me know.

The next discussion will start on the first monday of April.
