Alumni email lists facilitate connections between email list subscribers to create awareness about topics and resources that are relevant and of interest to the Anderson alumni community.
- Use good judgment. If you would not want to receive a message, don't send it.
- Be sensitive. Consider any cultural, religious, racial, gender, or political issues that could be interpreted differently by others.
- Be collegial. Offer comments that are collegial in tone—without hostility directed towards any one person or group.
- Be professional. If expressing differences of opinion, do so professionally and respectfully—and don't reply all.
- Professional advice
- Business development
- Job postings
- Referrals (e.g. consultant, attorney, nanny)
- UCLA Anderson announcements, news and events
- Events, preferably those organized by alumni, alumni chapters/groups or in partnership with UCLA Anderson
- Any content that will or may generate contention.
- Fund solicitation for ANY type of business venture, campaign, charity or miscellaneous project. Use alumni social media groups instead.
- Political oriented content, except when using email list "politics.alumni"
- Brochures, white papers or event announcements that aren't directly relevant to Anderson alumni.
The limitations of the platform technology of the alumni email lists system does not effectively support ongoing discussions. In addition, you (and other subscribers) may receive multiple versions of a message sent to multiple email lists. Due to these limitations, refrain from using "reply all."
Send your message ONLY to email lists with subscribers who will be interested. Information should be specifically relevant to that particular affinity, class, industry or regional email list.
- Send to a maximum of five email lists for each message. Many people are subscribed to multiple email lists thus your send may be reaching less people than you think.
- Reply directly to the poster if a message piques your interest—do not reply all.
- Repetitive messaging/advertising While ONE announcement about a new business launch, event, opportunity, promotion, resource or request for assistance is acceptable—no repetitive messaging is allowed. This excludes messages by alumni chapter and group leaders about official UCLA Anderson events or announcements.
- Sales lists/lead generation Treating any alumni email list as a sales list for your organization or as a repetitive channel for lead generation.
- Marketing database Taking individual subscriber emails or email list addresses to populate own contact databases or marketing campaigns with those emails, without first obtaining permission to do so from individual(s).
- Libel Written information intended to harm another person's reputation
- Slander Falsely spoken information which damages another
- Attachments Calendar invites or any type of documents, spreadsheets.
