MAILING LIST

Dear members

I am trying to update my emailing list so as to ensure that as many of you receive the circulars, general meeting agenda & minutes I send out from time to time. Not all circulars/meeting minutes will be published on the website.

For now, I have taken the list from the membership applications file dating back to 2006. I need more time to go through the old membership applications that are in my possession.
Some members have not provided their email addresses. If you have changed your email address and have not been receiving my circulars, kindly let me know. My email address is ekendraed@live.com
Some of you may be receiving duplicated emails, in which case please let me know so that I may delete all duplicates.
Very shortly Riyad and I will update the RSSL website call book, initially only the corporate members and later the associate and student members will be updated.
