i need to create a discussion forum where i need to create a post and send email to only specific people in the group . hw can i do this ?

Could you do it via a choice column for the post category and based on the selection, a workflow will send an email to the desired people?

So if choice = marketing, email Jim and Sue, if choice = IT email Bob, Jeff, and Jane, etc
