Slack chat (AMICAL members only)
AMICAL members may use our consortial chat platform, Slack (amical.slack.com), for quick questions. This may sometimes be the fastest way to get an answer.
Two main ways to post questions or comments:
- Post in the event channel (#amical2017), if you don’t mind other members seeing it.
- Open a direct message just to the person you’re trying to reach (@liza, @jeff, @alex, @zorkani, etc.).
Not on Slack yet? If you’re an AMICAL member, use your institutional email account and send “add me to Slack” to firstname.lastname@example.org
AMICAL Connect forum (AMICAL members only)
For longer questions, especially those that might be of broader interest to other members, AMICAL members may post to the General category on AMICAL Connect with the tag “amical-2017”.
Anyone may send questions/issues about any aspect of the event to email@example.com and we will route it to the appropriate person.
