The IACCP list is designed to improve communication among IACCP members. It has three main functions:

(1) sending timely information and reminders to members about IACCP events;
(2) distributing information of interest to members, such as job announcements; and
(3) discussions among members.

Only IACCP members may join the list. An IACCP member is defined in the constitution as (a) someone who has paid his or her dues for the current calendar year, and (b) someone who has paid dues within the last two years ("probationary member"). Both paid and probationary members may join the list. Only paid members receive JCCP.
