The bulk of AMICO operational duties are
decided collectively in the four working committees: editorial, rights,
technical and users & uses. All AMICO Members may designate staff
from their museums to sit on these committees and it is recommended
that at least one person monitors the activities of the four groups.
Your designates may sit on two or more committees and certain committees
have overlapping objectives such as editorial and technical, in which
it make sense for designates to sit on both.

I keep getting general AMICO email messages? How can I post a message?
AMICO uses electronic mail discussion
lists to make sure everyone stays informed. AMICO has one major mailing
list, amico.announce, that all team members from a Member institution
are subscribed to (unless they request to not be subscribed for some
This list is used by AMICO personnel
to update the entire Membership base on various information related
to the Consortium's operations. The general announcements list is read
only. Only AMICO employees may post to this list, so list chatter is
kept to a minimum.
If you would like to submit something
that you feel should be sent to entire AMICO Members List, please email
AMICO with that proposed submission. We will review it and post
it to the entire list if it seems to make sense.

Why do I keep getting AMICO Committee email
messages? How can I post a message?
When an AMICO team member is designated
to be a committee participant, they are subscribed to the corresponding
list. All list members may post to the committee lists. The committee
lists reply to the entire list, so remember that if you want to have
a private email conversation, take it off the list and just email that
one person directly.

I get added/taken off the general list?
Email AMICO if you
wish to be removed from the amico.announce list. We will confirm that
you should be removed with your institution's Principal Contact and
notify you and copy him/her when this is completed.
I get added/taken off Committee lists?
AMICO if you wish to be removed from a particular committee list.
If you are participating in a committee you must be on the list,
so removal from the list ALSO means that you are no longer a member
of that certain committee. We will confirm that you should be removed
with your institution's Principal Contact and notify you and copy him/her
when this is completed.
I'm going on vacation, should I get taken off
If you are out of the office for a long period (for
example, week and up vacations), please remember to email
AMICO to take you off any AMICO lists for that period because often
those "out of the office" autoresponders get the list replying in an
awful infinite loop which terrorizes everyone's email-box.
