Good to Know

Membership  You can add as many addresses as you like -- there's no maximum. 
Making Changes Changes to the list take effect almost immediately.
Who can be an Owner Anyone can be an owner, but at least one owner must have a Wharton account and be listed as an owner using that account.  Owners who do not have Wharton accounts cannot use the SPIKE mailing list interface, and will need to use lists.wharton.upenn.edu to edit subscriptions.
