Enable an external person to send an email to a group within the organization
I would like to have a "Contact us" option (i.e., Scholarship Committee) that an external person (member/non-member) could use to contact a group of organization/board members. I envision someone clicking on "Scholarship Committee" within the "Contact Us" dropdown and being able to send an email to the entire Scholarship Committee.

Work around could be:
Site Admin will grant access to a specific WA page for each Group Leader.
-- On this page will be a form Nicasio creates using WordPress and a
-- If more groups are added or changed, Nicasio would need to
add/update these forms for the Site Admin (or walk the Site Admin
through how to set these up).
The form will include the standard email fields (subject, and body, as
from and to fields will be auto-populated behind the scenes).
-- The from address will be set to the group leader's email within the
form's settings (a Site Admin or Nicasio would need to edit this if
changes are needed).
-- The to address(es) will be loaded via a custom WA API script
Nicasio creates that pulls all email addresses from members within the
specific group being sent to.
The WordPress site and form will need to be hosted where client chooses.
-- The forms will then be iframed/embedded into the group leader pages
The WordPress site will not meant to be accessed directly and should
probably be blocked unless visiting from within the iframed page while
on one of the Wild Apricot group leader pages.
-- The WordPress site will be streamlined/stripped down to only show
the forms so any other content would be added to the Wild Apricot
To complete the items mentioned above we estimate this at roughly
$2250 to $2700. Please note this is only a rough estimate and all WA
API involved work is billed hourly.

This would be very helpful for us too. Allowing public distribution list would allow us to communicate with the different committees in the organization without having to send email through the admin interface.
