Membership - Free to All
To join the network, all we need from you is your Name and Email address. By giving us this information we will add you to the network mailing list. Don’t worry, only the committee has sight of who the membership of the list is. Any member of the network can send an email to the entire mailing list by sending a single email to LGBTSTAFF@LISTS.UCC.IE, and it is a great way to stay in touch and share information relevant to your LGBTQ+ colleagues here in UCC.
To be added to the membership list simply send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the list.
Or you can sign yourself up automatically. Simply open this email, replacing "forename" and "surname" in the body of the email with your own forename and surname. Then simply hit send, and you'll be all signed up.
We will keep the names and email addresses of all eligible members on the list until they ask to be removed.
