First, the NANOG email list attendee at nanog.org is a new email list used by Merit, the NANOG Steering Committee, and NANOG Program Committee chairs to communicate meeting information directly with meeting attendees.  NANOG-Attendee at nanog.org is an email list used by NANOG meeting attendees who choose to communicate with each other regarding meeting activities.  NANOG-Support at nanog.org is an email list used to communicate with Merit staff directly.
