The AHP Newsgroup is a benefit of membership and provides members with timely information about AHP activities and newsworthy items to the list of AHP member and staff email addresses. On approval, messages are sent from the AHP administrative office. Submissions must contain information about an AHP member. These messages and/or press releases should include information that would be of interest to the general membership. Solicitations are not allowed except for charitable organizations. Messages cannot include statements that may harm the reputation or relationship with a fellow AHP member. These news items are also listed online for easy reference and linked to a member’s profile.
Messages should be sent as text in an email message or attached Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not send attached PDFs, third party email (ie: Constant Contact or MailChimp), images or logos. Messages may contain links, but please use the www or http:// that precedes the URL address. Do not embed links as tiny URLs. Members are urged to include contact information on image availability by stating: Images available on request.

Unfortunately, not everyone on the Newsgroup list use the same email system and many will not be able to open or view the attached files. Since the purpose of the Newsgroup is to have people read and/or publish the news, it is important to keep access as simple as possible. Please note that images are available by request in your release.
AHP Members may add the email addresses of staff members by sending a request to Chris Brune at firstname.lastname@example.org.
