Mailing lists: Members of SJDM are added to the sjdm-members mailing list, which is for communications about society business such as meetings and elections. It also provides a password for the members section of this site and a monthly reminder of it. This is a very low-volumue mailing list. You cannot unsubscribe from it. It is the only way the society has to communicate with members. Please make sure your email address is the one you use to receive mail. If you are a member of this society and you are not getting mail about Society elections and other business, please write

The jdm-society mailing list is much higher volume and is open to all for reading and posting, but moderated.

Gmail for several months, ending February 27, 2015, considered most of the list mail as spam. If you use Gmail and did not check your spam or create a filter for, make sure to check the archives to see what you missed.
