HUSITA Electronic Discussion List (listserv)

The HUSITA mailing list uses listserv tools to link HUSITA members.  The HUSITA mailing list started in 1985 as CUSSNet (Computer Use in Social Services Network).  It is a mechanism for people to exchange information and experiences on using IT in the human services.  It is operated by the HUSITA organization, an international association of IT innovators in human services dedicated to promoting the ethical and effective use of IT to better serve humanity. The HUSITA mailing list is not moderated.  The owners (Dick Schoech and Tom Hanna) reserve the right to remove those who offend, abuse, aggravate, or blatantly try to profit from the list.  Adequate warnings will be given.
