Policies: Job and Conference Announcements

If you have a question about the appropriateness of a posting that you would like to make to the list, or if you have a comment or complaint about a posting that was made to the list, please contact

The purpose of the Listservs sponsored by the Early Childhood and Parenting (ECAP) Collaborative at the University of Illinois is the exchange of information related to the topic of the Listserv among professionals and others. ECAP has established the following points as part of its Listserv policy related to postings of information about job and conference announcements.

  1. The posting of job announcements in commercial or noncommercial settings (e.g., universities, professional organizations) is appropriate.
  2. The posting of information about conferences, workshops, courses, etc., is appropriate.
  3. When posting information about jobs or conferences, please keep postings to a reasonable length. If you have a great deal of information to share, please post a summary or overview of the information and direct members to another appropriate source for more detailed information. (For example, they might visit the conference Web site for a complete schedule of conference sessions; or they may email you personally for details of a job application.)
