The Town Meeting Member Forum is a Google Group established to facilitate communications between Town Meeting Members and the general public regarding issues coming before Town Meetings. The Forum was first announced by the Board of Selectmen on August 21, 2018. Participation by Town Meeting Members is encouraged, however, it is at the discretion of each Town Meeting Member and the public to decide whether or not to join the group and how much to participate. To view the forum, and a copy of these instructions, please visit www.wellesleyma.gov/tmmforum.
Joining the Group
The easiest way to participate in the Town Meeting Member forum is to join the Group with a free Google account. If you’re a Gmail user, you already have a Google account! If you’re not already a Gmail user, you can still create a free Google account without changing your email address at https://accounts.google.com/SignUpWithoutGmail. Once you have signed into a Google account, click the blue “Join group to post” button in the web forum and you will receive a confirmation email.
While you don’t need to be a member of the Group to post to the forum, or search through what others have posted, joining the Group is the only way to ensure that replies to your post will be delivered to your Inbox.
Make a New Post
To post to the group, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re signed into your Google account, you can also click the red “New Topic” button in the web forum. Please note that the maximum size of a post, including attachments, is 10MB and that all posts are a public record.
Posts and replies will be sent to all members of the Group, but as a member, you can change your email delivery options at any time. Simply sign into Google Groups at https://groups.google.com, click on “My Groups”, and change your preferences to receive every new message, combined updates (25 messages per email), or daily summaries.
Leaving the Group
To unsubscribe to the Group, simply send an email to email@example.com. You can also leave the group from your “My Groups” menu at https://groups.google.com.
