If you are on OS X you can create an Automator application (not
workflow) that will auto Quit after it's sent out an email to this
List asking for people to contribute. You can then use Calendar to
create  a repeating event every 4 or 6 months and set it's alarm to
open your Send Email Automator application.

Every 4/6 months you'll be reminded of the time you've saved when you
see your Auto email on this List.

The only gotcha is you need to run your Send Email application first
before having Calendar do it so you can tick off Gatekeeper's warning
that it's a non-recognised application. But even if you forget this
Calendar should give you a warning that it can't open the app the
first time it tries to run.
