    • Break any of LinkedIn’s User Agreement rules

CONVERSATIONS 

Here are the guidelines for posting Conversations:

  • One topic at a time
  • When posting, try asking a question. It helps get conversations started and helps you get you what you want out of the conversation.
  • No unauthorized polls, surveys, or research
  • No self-promotion
  • No politics
  • No infringing on intellectual property, privacy, or other rights of third parties
  • No derogatory, unprofessional, disrespectful comments
  • Negative attacks on individuals or organizations are not acceptable
  • No links! Our goal is for conversations to remain IN THE GROUP. If you would like people’s responses/opinions on an article you are referencing, please cut and paste the pertinent part of the article, instead of just putting in a link. Here’s why: A link will take people OUT of our groups, along with their comments, questions, and anything else related to your original posting. We want you to benefit from the responses to your conversation starter. Please remember to reference the articles’s title, author, where the article was published and when, when posting it. It’s only fair to appropriately attribute the reference material.
  • Your willingness to post and follow these guidelines is greatly appreciated and leads to great conversations!

JOBS

  • ONLY subject-matter-related jobs may be posted.
  • Jobs MUST be submitted on the jobs tab.
  • Jobs submitted on the Discussions tab will be deleted.
