From M&SOM President

Excited to be upgrading MSOM Listserv to INFORMS Connect

informs_connect_320As the president of the MSOM Society, I am looking forward to introducing you to our newest member benefit, a MSOM Community within INFORMS Connect. We will soon be transitioning the MSOM listserv from its existing software platform to a new and improved community platform: INFORMS Connect ( As an existing MSOM member, your subscription has been automatically migrated to the Community page within INFORMS Connect. If you are not currently a paid member of MSOM, you will lose access to this content, as it is considered a member benefit. Don’t miss out – join now!

Here’s a quick overview of some of the new features you can expect in INFORMS Connect:

Enhanced discussion capabilities. Now you’ll receive emails that are more structured and easier to read than a traditional listserv or forum alert, and will include a repository of all archived discussions. No more searching through email!

Improved Member Directory search. You can find members by name, location, SIG affiliation, area of expertise, work setting, and more.

Granular privacy controls. You can have complete control over what information you share with members of the community and your contacts.

Centralized subscription management. You can manage your subscriptions to all discussions in one place. Choose to receive daily digests or real-time emails by group.

Resource sharing. All attachments posted to discussions are archived in a dedicated MSOM Library. You can also add or download documents from the library.

You will receive a final notification when the transition has been completed. At that time, this list will be deactivated. I look forward to connecting with you!
