Welcome to the MD Chapter Ed....hope you can join us at the Nov gettogether.......
The following is an exerpt from our Chapter regs ... stop up at the top of the MD Chapter threads and take a look at the READ FIRST threads!
NEW MEMBERS- When you have been accepted to the Maryland Chapter, the Chapter Leader will create a welcome thread in the chapter forum for you. You will need to stop by, and post a little about yourself, so the other members can get to know you. This is a requirement for chapter membership. New members who choose not to do this will be removed from chapter membership. If you do not have private messages available to you yet, I will post a link to this thread in your visitor's messages, under your profile.
A basic rule for being a Maryland Chapter Member is to occasionally participate in some form, which can include stopping by the chapter forum, and let us know what you're up to, posting on Maryland forum threads, creating threads of your own in the forum, attending GTG's (get-to- gethers), and/or promote the chapter on FTE. Members can and will be removed from the Chapter for not being active in some way.
We also ask that after you have achieved 25 posts, that you enable your Private Message (PM) feature, so you may receive occasional PM's about Maryland Chapter happenings. If you're not sure how to do this, get in touch with me, and I'll be glad to help you get it set up.
You will also be required to give the Chapter Leader your e-mail address. This will NOT be for publication, but for the purpose of the CL or his designated representative to be able to contact you for any necessary reason.
The chapter is here for the benefit of all our Maryland Members, so please participate and help keep the chapter active!
