AARC Networking and Social Media Rules and Etiquette
Thanks for being part of our online communities. To ensure the best possible experience for all members, we have established some basic guidelines for participation.
By joining and using these e-mail lists, forums and social media accounts you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines for these groups. You also agree to reserve content to topics best suited to the medium. This is a great medium with which to solicit the advice of your peers, benefit from their experience, and participate in an ongoing conversation. Questions about this service should be directed to our Member Services department.
Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines. If you have questions, contact the member services department prior to participating. In order to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, AARC reserves the right to suspend or terminate membership on all lists, forums and social media accounts for members who violate these rules.
