The Division has a general LISTSERV (Div17Discuss ), an announcement-only LISTSERV (Div17Announce ), and other LISTSERVs used by various SCP sections, special interest groups (SIGs), and special task groups (STGs).
The general membership LISTSERV(Div17Discuss) is used to facilitate timely dissemination of information to its membership, such as job postings, other position opportunities, and research projects. The announcement-only LISTSERV, on the other hand, is used to facilitate timely dissemination of information from the SCP President to SCP members and primarily consists of monthly updates. Other LISTSERVs are used at the discretion of the group sponsoring the LISTSERV to advance the mission and purpose of the group. All LISTSERVs are hosted by the American Psychological Association and administered by Mark Taracuk. All subscription processes are being managed by the administrator.
Who can subscribe to the LISTSERVs?
Subscriptions are restricted to Division 17 members and Student Affiliates. Visit APA membership or Division 17 membership for information on how to become a member. Subscription to section, SIG, and STG LISTSERVs also requires membership in that group.

How do I post to a LISTSERV?
If you already are a member of a LISTSERV to which you want to send information, all you need to do is address your e-mail to that LISTSERV address.
Alternatively, if you wish only to request posting of information on the group’s LISTSERV, you can e-mail the contact person and request permission to distribute your information. Once permission is granted, the contact person will post your information.
