The MAMA LISTSERV is a service available to members of MAMA and to all law firm partners/associates of a MAMA member.

Neither MAMA nor MML monitors or edits messages before they are distributed.  Neither MAMA nor MML is responsible for the content of the messages on this site.  However, MAMA and MML reserve the right to remove anyone from the list at any time for any reason.


  1. The MAMA LISTSERV may not be used for fundraising or political activity.
  2. The MAMA LISTSERV should not be used to promote or support interests adverse to municipalities.
  3. All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are prohibited.  Do not post anything in a LISTSERV message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.
  4. Please note carefully all items listed in the disclaimer below, particularly regarding the copyright ownership of information posted to the list.
  5.  Never send anything via internet that you wouldn’t share with opposing counsel.
  6. Do not post commercial messages on the MAMA LISTSERV.  Contact people directly with product and service information if you believe it would help them.
  7.  No advertising with the exception of legal office position openings and citation to specifically helpful resource materials is permitted.
  8. Use caution in your postings.  Information posted on the lists is available for all to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws.

LISTSERV Etiquette

  1. Include a signature tag on all messages with your name, affiliation, location and e-mail address.
  2. State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line.  This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.
  3. Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information beneficial to the entire list.
  4. Send message such as “thanks for the information” or “me, too” to individuals—not to the entire list.  Do this by using your e-mail application’s forward option and typing in or cutting and pasting in the e-mail address of the individual to whom you want to respond.
  5. Do not send administrative messages, such as “remove me from the list,” through the MAMA LISTSERV.  Instead, contact the list manager, Andy Kukla at alkukla@mml.org.
  6. Send messages or links that are of particular interest to municipal attorneys.
  7. Do not send messages of general news events or happenings.
