In November 1999, I started an experiment in school communications when I partnered up with BNSI to facilitate the creation of email mailing lists related to public education in Albemarle County. More than six years later, the project is going strong with the launch this month of the Albemarle High School PTSO's "Patriot Progress" joining as list #17. Now over 6,100 email addresses are subscribed to these school mailing lists. Passing the 6,000 subscriber milestone presents the opportunity for me to provide a long overdue message of thanks to the Learmonth family and BNSI.
Whenever I have asked them for help, they have always been there to support improved communications in our school community. The Learmonth's generously share their technology platform because they sincerely want to give back to their community. They have never asked me to promote their services beyond an easily overlooked tagline at the very bottom of our emails that says "Internet mailing list services provided by BNSI."
If you have benefited from these mailing lists, you can thank them publicly by posting a comment on this blog, dropping them an email (sales @ bnsi.net), or by purchasing their services for everything from residential DSL to website hosting. Great firm. Great family. Excellent service and support. Thanks BNSI!
