Not Receiving Your SIG Newsletter/Communique?

There could be two reasons for this issue.

The first could be you have chosen UNSUBSCRIBE to email messages in your ONS Profile (under Preferences "Manage my email subscriptions") or you opted out of receiving ONS emails.  You can log into your (if you do not already have a profile, select “Create One Now”).  Once you are logged in, you can check your contact information, other resources and preferences.  Go to your profile and select “Personal”, where you can add or change your email address in our database.
If you wish to receive SIG correspondence but not other emails from ONS, select “Preferences” on the left and then select “Manage my email subscriptions”, under “Preferences”.  the Manage Subscriptions screen comes up and you can select from the list emails that you DO NOT want to receive by scrolling down the screen.  You will still receive your SIG information as part of your membership as long as we have a valid email address on file for you.    
The second could be your institution has been restricting your from receiving the ONS emails.  There has been an increase of interference within transit by things such as spam and security filters and junk mail folders.  You may want to check your spam folder as well.  You can ask your IT team/department, along with your local email client (i.e. Outlook) to white list ONS wherever there are filters in place.
If you aren’t receiving ONS emails at all, email to check on the status of your ONS email account.  If you do not provide an email address, you will not be notified when a new SIG newsletter or communiqué is posted.  You can always access newsletters and communiqués by going to your SIG’s Virtual Community.  
All SIG newsletters and communiqués are posted to their respective SIG Virtual Community, and members with valid email addresses receive notification when the latest newsletters and communiqués are posted.
