    Exception # 1: Information-Based Events

    • Due to their informational focus, paid educational courses and product demo events may be announced on the List once per course or event by the organizer, and the subject may be discussed further by other members if they are disassociated parties.
    • Friends, coworkers and close business associates of the promoter do not qualify as disassociated parties.
    • If you have a question about whether your intended post falls within this exception, please contact the PACCIN Publications Committee, chris@paccin.org.
    • As the promoter you may not effectively re-post the original announcement by responding to questions received on or off the List.
    • As an alternative, you are advised to include contact information in the announcement for addressing questions individually off the List, and instruct readers to send questions directly to the contact provided. You may also direct members to the designated promotional space in the PACCIN website forum, where questions may be answered publicly in a thread started by the promoter or anyone else.

    Exception #2: Commercial Members

    • Commercial members may respond to discussions on the List about their products, services and events for the purpose of correcting misinformation.
    • You may also provide answers that respond directly to unprompted member questions. This includes listing your company or a service it provides in answer to such questions as, ‘where can I purchase ___?’ or ‘‘who does ____ in my region?’
