You don’t have to wear shorts and comfortable shoes.

Three or four times a year the AMA  needs to send email to all the families of kids in the music program. Its not just a case of hitting ‘reply all’ though. We need to conform to FoIPPA rules like providing  for subscription by invite and a robust unsubscribe process. We have to eliminate duplicate email address. We have to … well, you get the picture. Fortunately, we are not the first to need to do this and so, there is a program called “mailman” that does almost all of the work. A human is required to actually create the emails and send them, and to respond to replies to the list. Its all sit-down, desk work in a web browser so although you do need to have access to a computer, it doesn’t matter which kind. The whole job probably takes… maybe 20 hours a year, maybe an hour or two max per email plus a few hours at the end of the year getting the invitations out to the parents of new grade 8s.

If you have questions about this, send them to and we will reply or maybe bulk out this page and let you know
