If you are recent alum, you will probably want to add yourself to some or all of these, even if you were already on them through pika-private when you lived here. Also consider that your kerberos email address will not last forever unless you rename a single-member mailing list to the same name as your kerberos using the blanche command and then make it owned by somebody with an eternal kerberos.
Housecorp is the nonprofit organization that owns and provides high-level support for pika, and the pika alumni association which scheduules reunions, produces the alum newsletter, and organizes events with and helps out the current in-house pika community. All pika alums automatically become voting members of Housecorp. All current pikans are non-voting members.
