Board of Governors Email Accounts

Therefore, they are not accounts that should be used for Board of Governors (BOG) business, since they could be disabled by these rules at any time.

BOG Accounts

Pima's IT department has created email accounts for each Board member. These accounts, which end in “_bog” (for example, jsmith12_bog), should be used for all Board business. To make it easier for the public to email Board members, IT has assigned an alias with the district number to each of these accounts. For example, if Jean Smith represents District 1, the public can email her at Emails sent to that alias automatically appear in the “jsmith12_bog” inbox.

Any emails sent to that address are received by all BOG members as well as select members from the Chancellor’s Office. The Chancellor’s Office is also the Group manager.

In addition to seeing all emails that were sent to the Group in their “_bog” inbox, BOG members can also access the group messages by going to, clicking My groups, and then selecting the group named boardofgovernors. They can then browse and reply to group messages on the Groups page, which has an easy to use interface with menus and a threaded display.
