The American Philosophical Association (APA) invites you to use
its Internet-accessible bulletin board system. To access it,
initiate a telnet session and connect to atl.calstate.edu or Once connected, type "apa" (without the quotes,
of course) at the login prompt. Follow the menus from there.

Note: Your system must support telnet. If you are unsure about the
capabilities of your host computer, please contact your campus systems

The board contains a list of e-mail addresses of APA members, a
Philosophical Calendar, news from the National Office,
information on joining the APA, and other items of interest to
the philosophical community. A simple unix mail system allows the
user to send mail to the bulletin board administrator. It is usually easier,
however, to send regular e-mail to me after you disconnect from the board.

Please contact me at either address below if you have questions
or if you experience difficulties using the board. I welcome suggestions,
including ideas about other places to post this announcement.
