Subject: Elder Adults/Adults-at-Risk and Adult Protective Services Systems Listserv available

This email is to inform you of changes to receiving correspondence, updates and/or memos from the Elder Adults/Adults-at-Risk and Adult Protective Services Systems program. As of August 15, 2007, the Bureau of Aging and Disability Resources, Adult Protective Services will have a listserv notification system for all correspondence. You will no longer receive correspondence, updates or memos via regular e-mail. All communication will be sent via the listserv.

The electronic Listserv will: 

  • provide quicker access to information; 
  • provide an efficient way to share the information with staff in your agency who need it; 
  • reduce the number of paper copies you produce and/or maintain; 
  • provide an online search feature, reducing your time to find memos; and 
  • provide your agency with an electronic back-up of the memo series.

If you are interested in receiving electronic notification of policy-related information, numbered and informational memos (SafetyNetworks) for the Adults-at-Risk Services (APS), you will need to sign-up at http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/aps/Pros/listserv.htm 

In order to sign-up for the Memo Listserv, you will need a valid email address and internet access. Memo Listserv Sign-up Form and Procedures 

  1.  Go to: http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/aps/Pros/listserv.htm 
  2.  Fill out the sign-up form 
  3. Please select the Elder Adults/ Adults-at-Risk and Adult Protective Services Systems 
  4. Select 'Submit this Request' button.

You should get a "welcome" email within 24 hours for each list you join. If you do not get a welcome email, try signing up again.
