General rules:

Most importantly, please be respectful to our fellow members, associates and trainees. Refrain from arguing, and any attacks aimed at the administrators will not be tolerated.  

Administrators reserve the right to remove anyone from the group if they fail to adhere to the rules. Membership of this group is not a right. 

Administrators cannot monitor every post. Members are therefore responsible for the legitimacy of their posts and to ensure that the content of their posts do not violate any legislation.

NO adverts in the main group please, including unsolicited recommendations.

Do NOT spam several groups with the same post, please. Choose a group appropriate to your post, and ask the administrators if you are unsure. We are happy to help.
