As a member of a Section or Committee, you can choose to receive your listserv messages as emails (normal mode), in a daily digest (digest), or on the web only (vacation/web mode), where you can log in and read the listserv messages at any time.  To choose your listserv settings, click on "Lists" on the left hand menu of your respective listserv page, and then "Settings." 

You can also have emails from automatically moved to specific folders in your email application, rather than having them appear in your inbox.  To view a guideline on how to change your SDCBA listserv settings, click here.
