QUIP members interested in participating in this program should contact Liz Yeats at quip_at_2quakers.net. (Replace _at_ with @ in her address).Liz will develop and e-mail an MSExcel-based protocol for list format to initial participants by August 15. Program participants will format lists to meet the protocol and return them to Liz by September 30 for de-duping and consolidation. When lists become available to all Quip members on the website, those who provided and agreed to help maintain lists will have access at no charge. Other QUIP members will have access at a per-list charge determined by QUIP. A $10 upper limit and sliding scale was suggested for initial charges.
