For the past year and a half I have been a member of the Division 1 Steering Committee and in that capacity I have been asked to monitor the Division’s “member’s only” listserve. It has become apparent to me that the 400 plus affiliates who belong to the listserve vary considerably not only in terms of their activity level on the list but also in the topics that are of interest to them. One of the topics of recurring interest is in the area of the speech-language pathologist’s role in literacy learning. It has been educational for me to observe what the specific issues are and how the dynamics of the listserve can provide a place to work them through. Some of our affiliates are quite comfortable bringing questions to the larger group concerning specific case involvement, and it is gratifying that so many others are willing to share their experiences and expertise in response. I certainly have benefited from the wisdom of so many members who have been eager to share helpful hints and resources.
