Association Highlight: Listserves

The Municipal Association of SC offers a number of listserves for different officials and staff members. Through these listserves, users can connect with colleagues across the state, asking questions and learning about best practices. The platform also allows users to search through past discussion threads, set up polls to ask questions and share documents. 

There are individual listserves for the Municipal Association’s affiliate organizations, which address the professional needs of court administrators, technology directors, Main Street program directors, municipal power systems, stormwater managers, business licensing officials, community development officials, municipal attorneys, finance directors, clerks and treasurers, human resources directors and utility billing officials. There are also listserves for planning and zoning officials, city managers and administrators, as well as public information officers. 

Everyone with a current affiliate membership is a member of the affiliate’s listserve, which they may access through their member home page on the Association’s website. To access a listserve for the first time, members should log in to, select “Member Home,” then set communication preferences, such as whether they want to receive email notification of posts. 

To find and join other listserves, visit the master listserve list. Under the appropriate listserve, select “request access.” After logging in, follow the prompts to sign up for the new listserve. For help, call the helpline at 803.933.1297.
