That’s it - you’re done! A welcome email will be sent by our Group managers.

Option 2: Create a new Google account 

Access to the new group DOES NOT require a Gmail email address, but it does require a Google account login. If you don't already have a Google account, you can go to google.com and click the sign in button, then on the sign in page click the "Create Account" link.
