Introduction

All MFS doorkeepers and related organisers are invited to join the MFS-Doorkeepers Google Group. MFS Committee members that have an interest in doorkeeping matters are also encouraged to join the group. The term "group member" in this document means all of the above.

Purpose

This group allows convenient communication from MFS Committee and the Membership Secretary to all group members, and discussion between group members. It is not a separate organisational group, just an email address list.

There are also documents that, for reasons such as security, cannot be stored on the MFS Public or Members site. This group allows documents to be stored securely and made available only to group members.

Google Account

In order to join this or any other Google Group, you will need a free Google Account. This is needed so that access to the group can be controlled. Please use an account name that other group members will recognise - maybe your real name or given name and first initial of surname eg John Doe or JohnD.

Please ensure that the "nickname" showing in the MFS-Doorkeepers group is your real name.

To create a Google account, surf along to http://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount and follow the prompts.
