+# <a name="Welcome to the Portland State Ae"></a> Welcome to the Portland State Aerospace Society!
+
+We're really glad you're considering helping us out. We're an all volunteer group; if we've done anything cool, it's because we have such kickass members. Do welcome to the team!
+
+We'd like you to carefully consider how you'd like to participate, and then based on that, do one of the following three things:
+
+### <a name="I&#39;d just want to know what&#39;s goi"></a> I'd just want to know what's going on in general
+
+The best way to monitor our progress to hit our web site. In particular, <http://schedule.psas.pdx.edu/> and <http://history.psas.pdx.edu/> are the best ways to do that.
+
+For those who just want to monitor our progress via email, please sign up for the `psas-announce` mailing list at <http://lists.psas.pdx.edu/psas-announce>. It's an open mailing list that we'll post major announcements to, such as team meetings and launch details and stauts updates and whatnot. And also,
+
+### <a name="I&#39;d like to monitor some aspect"></a><a name="I&#39;d like to monitor some aspect "></a> I'd like to monitor some aspect of PSAS (avionics, propulsion, software, etc)
+
+Our mailing lists are for active volunteers. If you're not going to be active, and you'd just like to monitor what we're doing, then we'd like to encouarge you to join `psas-announce` and read the various list archives, rather than join a specific team's mailing list. We try and keep the lists very focussed on topic, and a lot of non-active people on the lists has historically gotten in the way.
+
+That said, if you have a reason for monitoring the lists - such as you're working on similar projects to our projects - then please feel free to join the particular team's list. You may be asked why you'd like to join; please don't feel offended, we honestly just want to know.
