"The best Community Development Banking resource in Cyberspace."
I get many comments about the volume of email generated by the
communitydevelopmentbanking list. I moderate the list by editing out
postings that are not appropriate or not of general CDB interest.
Here is my "rule of thumb" list, which I regularly refine in order to guide
my editing. Comments appreciated.
CD Banking Discussion - Unlimited
Trade Associations - One posting a month
Newsletters - Once a quarter
CDFI Local updates - Annual
Conference - One Notice
Publications - One Notice
Job Listings - One Notice
Political campaigning - Never
Non CD Banking Topics - Never
