Thanks Paula --
I sent out 12 messages last night to 3 LISTs (SLA-NHC, CBHL, IAMSLIC) -- I
think (for future reference)
it's much prefereable to send separate messages for each position -- for
one thing it simplifies and clarifies responses (there are different
instructions for the positions at hand) it also makes the individual
positions more distinctive from a marketing standpoint...
