WHITELISTING INSTRUCTIONS

A whitelist is a list of email addresses that you want to receive email from. By adding an address to your whitelist, you are telling the email system not to filter email from that address. Follow the instructions below to add us to your whitelist, to ensure that you receive our mailings after you subscribe.

It is especially important to add our emails to your whitelist if you have registered to attend an event, as your attendance information will be emailed to you.

Most people have no idea how to add your email address to their whitelist, also referred to as ‘safe list.’ For the most part, you’re simply asking your email recipients to add you to their contact list. The fact that you are a contact tells their email program that they want your email.

You can insert the instructions appropriate to the email address of each of your attendees and let people knowas they sign up.

Here are the instructions for some of the most popular email programs:
