Over the past year you will have noticed that we have been using the afsusa.org email domain for volunteer groups in AFS-USA. Recently we expanded this to allow use of this domain by Area Teams and Chapters. For example, the email address for the National Council is NationalCouncil@afsusa.org and the email address for the Lenape chapter is email@example.com. Now we are ready to expand the use of these email addresses even further.
Effective immediately, we are pleased to announce the availability of email accounts in the afsusa.org email domain for any registered volunteer. The account names for these will be Firstname.Lastname@afsusa.org, i.e. Jane.Doe@afsusa.org.
The use of these addresses will (1) promote AFS-USA, (2) make it easy for people to remember how to contact you, and (3) allow you to segregate your AFS email from your personal/work email.
Use of this email is optional, but any registered volunteer may request one if they desire. If you would like us to set up one of these email addresses for you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The volunteer domain administrators will handle your request.
We will only honor requests for registered volunteers. Mailboxes should only be used for mail associated with AFS-USA, not for personal email. Policies related to removing of accounts when someone is no longer volunteering will be developed at a later date.
