Subject: [CPEO-MEF] What is the value of this Forum? Please reply.
CPEO has operated the Military Environmental Forum newsgroup for nearly
eleven years. From what we hear from subscribers - as well as people who
receive our messages via the web or as forwarded messages from
subscribers - it has proven valuable to all stakeholder groups involve
in federal facilities and defense industry environmental issues. Today's

For most of the life of the Forum, it has been supported by government
grants. The last of those grants lapsed in May, 2005, and there is no
prospect for follow-on funding for several months.

We have three options:

1. Terminate the listserve. Note that CPEO's Brownfields program is
supported by a continuing grant, and so the Brownfields Internet Forum
will continue as a free service.

2. Obtain foundation grants or private donations. Though we receive some
money from such sources, it is insufficient to support the Military
Environmental Forum.

3. Charge a subscription fee. Because there is a larger target audience
than for the newer Installation Reuse Forum (our base closure
newsgroup), we are considering a lower pricing structure. We are
considering charging, on a sliding scale, $60 to $120 per year, paid annually.

WOULD YOU SUBSCRIBE AT THIS RATE? Please send me soon a personal e-mail
to let me know. The overall response will greatly influence our decision.
