Dear CASFAA Members,

This email is to inform you that the CASFAA listserve will be shutting down immediately. With our new interactive website now up and running there will be no further need to use the listserve. The Board has designed what we feel is a a very interactive tool where all CASFAA members can message and communicate with each other and share resources across provinces and territories. As such, the Board will no longer be supporting the listserve through Concordia.

What does this mean to you?
