From HacDC Wiki
This policy is meant to clarify how communications are handled at HacDC. We have an obligation to:
- Collaborate clearly and effectively within HacDC.
- Communicate effectively with the general public.
This policy outlines the various methods of communication necessary to facilitate the mission of HacDC.
E-mail is the front line of contact between HacDC and the outside world. It is also how most contact happens within the organization. The communications policy spells out how e-mail is to be used by HacDC for maximum effectiveness and mibs.
Member E-mail Addresses/Aliases
Each member is entitled to an @hacdc.org e-mail account. HacDC shall offer hosting for @hacdc.org e-mail accounts or offer the option of forwarding to the member's chosen e-mail address. Member e-mail shall not be archived, except as chosen by the member in a hosted e-mail account.
Organizational Contact E-mail Addresses
Generic e-mail addresses should be lists comprised of members serving that particular function. Each generic list should also have an archival function associated with it, either an archive e-mail address or a web archive available only to members of the list.

Project Contact E-Mail Addresses
Each ongoing project must have an e-mail address associated with it.
