Dear List Managers,

I just tried to send a copy of the call for nominations for Name of the
Year to the ADS listserve immediately after joining it. I guess joining
it doesn’t happen immediately, because my posting was rejected. I must
leave momentarily for a trip to help my mother move into a nursing home,
so I hope you will be able to post this to the list. I am both copying
it into the body of this email and attaching it, so that you can deal
with it in whichever way you think is best.

Thank you!

Cleveland Kent Evans
