Our INPS listserv is now being managed by MJ Hatfield, with Casey Kohrt serving as the official representative at the University of Iowa. The University of Iowa Information Technology Services hosts the Iowa-Native-Plants and the Iowa-Insects LISTSERV lists, and Lisa Schintler, Senior IT Support Consultant, has provided technical support for LISTSERV issues for many years.

The INPS board wishes to express its thanks to Diana Horton for establishing and managing the listserv for many years, and to Lisa for her ongoing support. Thanks also to MJ and Casey for taking over its management. With all of their help, this tool is serving as a major communications link for INPS members and other plant lovers across the Upper Midwest.
