Your Working E-Mail Address Is Important To TAPR
As we transition our to more automated and a reduced paper consuming operation your email address has become quite important. I know many of your are reluctant to spread your email address around just as we are. You may have noticed that the office e-mail address as well as those of members and officers are not provided in plain text on the website anymore.
We do ask for your e-mail address whenever you place an order or join. This address is used only to contact you when necessary for the processing of the order. As we transition to a more automated and paperless office, this is also being used to remind you of renewal time for your membership. Some of you may have already been the 'target' of our initial attempts to send you a renewal reminder.
What our reminder e-mails have shown is that a high percentage of addresses in our records are no longer working. This is most likely because many are trying to avoid spam and change addresses when the old one becomes too much of a target. Another reason is the result of an ISP change. If you has changed recently (e. g. since your last order or renewal), please contact us with your new address.
What's the point of this little article? Please trust TAPR with an e-email address which is likely to remain workable for at least a year and update us if you do need to change your address. We're not going to share it with anyone else. We won't even give it to another member without your OK.
If you have an e-mail screening feature that requires an entry in a white list or other means of authorization, please contact us for the addresses to enter in your white list.
P. S. there's no connection between our membership database and the address database for any email list you may belong to. So unfortunately you'll have to notify the office and also change your e-mail reflector setting separately with the password in the monthly reminder.
