Subject: AIM / Cyberspace Support Group Date: Wed, 8 Jan 1997 Xref: news soc.culture.native, alt.native Hi all, I just spoke with Dennis Banks' office to clarify the role of the AIM Cyberspace Support Group which has on occasion been defined as a chapter and whose role is not very clear. For example, a recent NAT-HLTH posting announced the establishment of the AIM Cyber-Support Group Sobriety Mailing List. Ishgooda has since clarified things for that list but not for Native-L. The AIM Cyber-Support Group is just that: a group that supports AIM on many of their issues by sharing information from the organization. They are not a chapter as self-described in the SD incident post on Native-L. They are supposed to get clearance on anything before sending it out with the AIM name but apparently that has not always happened. Banks' office also would like to remind people to separate the messages being sent on behalf of AIM by the support group from their individual voices. Personally, I think they should perhaps, eliminate AIM from their title, and simply refer back to the organization when applicable. Although the Cyber-support group may not necessarily be the voice of AIM where policy making is concerned, I do, however, congratulate Linda and Jordan for their efforts with the very serious health problem of alcoholism. This, I know has long been an AIM concern. I hope they will be able to find success with this venture. It is very much needed. Dennis would like you to know that he is in the process of establishing a Home Page for his office and then a subsequent page for Sacred Run. As soon as the information is decided I will inform you of the details. You will then be assured accuracy about Sacred Run or National AIM's position in any program, political situation, or advocacy issue in which they are involved.
