New on…

The AltTox Forum is now the AltTox Community Blog:

As part of the AltTox website redesign, the AltTox Forum is moving and evolving into the AltTox Community Blog. We have already transferred all Forum posts made since AltTox’s re-launch in August and republished them on the blog page.

There are now two ways to post to the Community Blog:

  • If you would like ongoing access to post directly to the blog, please request a new log-in ID ( We will email sign-up and posting instructions to you. Or…
  • To submit occasional notices or comments, simply email the information to us at, and we will post it on the blog. We will credit you, the sender, as the contributor of the information, unless you tell us otherwise.

Additionally, we are introducing an AltTox listserv. The listserv will forward new items from the Community Blog, and other information deemed relevant to the AltTox Community. To subscribe, send an email to, with the word “subscribe” on the subject line, OR visit and sign up directly. You will have the option to specify whether you prefer to receive announcements as they are posted, or in a daily or weekly “digest” form.

The Forum will remain as a historical, searchable archive at its original URL (;board=21.0), but it will be closed to new postings. (The archive link will always be available on the Community Blog page, as well.)

We look forward to your ongoing participation in the AltTox Community Blog. Your contributions make it a premier source of event notices, requests for comments, grant sources and deadlines, job listings, and other information of value to the AltTox Community.
