December 2016

America is a great country.  We have the right (and responsibility) to vote for our public officers; we have the right to a trial; we have the right to a jury of our peers for both criminal and civil matters.  This is never more apparent than now—during the presidential election time.  Every four years (and in any year for the parent of middle-schooler taking the mandatory Constitution test) we reflect on what it means to have our Constitutional privileges and opportunities.  They are bedrock of what makes our great country. 

Members of ASTC have the opportunity to be involved and shape how some of these privileges are implemented and impact American citizens.  We do this in our practices and in a different way as a Society.  ASTC is currently on the forefront of research identifying opinions about these rights and suggesting action accordingly.  As a Society we play a unique and important role in our justice system.  Be an active ASTC member and realize the collective significance with us.  

Patty Kuehn, President of ASTC

Not Receiving ASTC emails and/or ASTC Grams?
It has come to our attention that some members may not have received some ASTC communications due to the information automatically being directed differently than you wish, such as to “junk.” Please check your Junk/Spam/Clutter inboxes for emails sent from ASTCoffice@astcweb.org.  Please be sure to label emails from ASTCoffice@astcweb.org as legitimate information - not junk.  To ensure that you receive all ASTC communications in your inbox, you should whitelist the sending email address, essentially marking it as safe in your email client. This will also prevent emails from automatically going to your Spam or “Junk” folder.

Adding “ASTC Office” to your Whitelst:
Each mail client has a different process for adding a sender to your safe list. Below is a link to instructions on how to whitelist ASTC emails and ensure images display correctly. Please note, if you have subscribed to ASTC using your work or school email address, you may need to request additional assistance from your IT department to add it to the organization’s whitelist.

Instructions on How to Whitelist Emails
If you registered and provided a personal email address, but have not been receiving ASTC Grams, Court Call newsletter, or other ASTC communications and delivery has suddenly stopped, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may be filtering your email automatically. If you suspect that your ISP is filtering mail that you do want to receive, you should visit your ISP’s support web site and look for their SPAM policy.

You may be able to:
1. Opt out of the filtering
2. Whitelist certain senders manually
3. Report a specific problem through a contact form

If you can’t find any of these options, contact your ISP via email or phone. Ask them if a server-side spam filter may be catching this wanted piece of mail, and request that the @astcweb.org domain be whitelisted.

We want to ensure that all ASTC Members are receiving information from the ASTC Office. (Contact: Destiny Nance-Evans
