Guidelines for Community Discussion Boards

The discussion boards are intended to help facilitate professional networking and to promote common interests. Some examples might include: …
Reaching out for work-related advice, support, problem solving, etc.
Discussing new legislation or policies that relate to CHWs
Sharing new information, brochures, flyers or tools

Communicate with courtesy and respect
Keep the post friendly and on topic
Reread your post, be sure what you are saying is clear
Spell-check, spell-check, spell-check
Respect the privacy and personal information of other participants when posting
Be considerate of others’ viewpoints; respectfully disagree when opinions do not align
Be mindful of not repeating posts
Posts will be removed when no longer timely

Please DO NOT:
Post prejudicial comments or profanity
Post non-CHW-relevant, marketing, or sales-oriented materials
Write defamatory remarks or false statements (i.e. comments that degrade a protected status: race, religion, gender, sexuality, abilities, etc.)
Make fun of someone else’s thought or opinions
Make a personal attack on other CHWs, community members, affiliations, organizations
Continue with a post thread that you do not want others to view; consider emailing those with whom you wish to continue a private conversation
