OLeaders @ OList.com
OLeaders is an informal private e-mail list for the leaders and helpers of Objectivist organizations, particularly community groups and campus clubs. Its purpose is to facilitate the exchange of ideas about the effective creation, management, expansion, and promotion of Objectivist organizations and their events. The list also serves as a conduit for announcements of likely interest to group leaders and their members.
Subscription to OLeaders is limited to Objectivists. Any Objectivist actively involved in the management of an Objectivist organization (or seriously considering creating such) may subscribe and post to OLeaders. Objectivists working for related advocacy groups are also encouraged to subscribe and post. Other Objectivists are welcome to subscribe to the list, but only as lurkers; they cannot post. OLeaders is not moderated, but members who violate its rules will be subject to moderation, if not unsubscribed.
OLeaders is managed by Santiago Valenzuela. Santiago is active in the management of Front Range Objectivism as the leader of the monthly 3FROG discussion group. He can be reached at email@example.com.
OLeaders was launched in January 2011. At present, it has over 55 members.
To join the OLeaders mailing list as a poster, you must meet two criteria:
Note: You do not qualify as an Objectivist if you consider yourself to be a libertarian (or associate with the Libertarian Party), advocate revising Objectivism (like David Kelley's "open system"), or associate with the false advocates of Objectivism (most notably David Kelley, Nathaniel Branden, Barbara Branden, and Chris Sciabarra).
You can request a subscription to OLeaders via this web form. You must briefly explain how you meet the list's criteria for membership: please write a few sentences. If you are confused or doubtful about the subscription criteria, please do not request a subscription without first e-mailing the list manager Santiago Valenzuela.
To join the OLeaders mailing list as a lurker, you need only be an Objectivist. Please indicate that you wish to only lurk -- and why -- when requesting to join the list.
The list is hosted on Google Groups, so subscribing requires an account with Google. (It's free and easy to create.) Click here for instructions on managing your OList subscriptions.
After you subscribe, please post an introduction, including your name, your involvement and experience with your Objectivist organization.
