Online Conduct Standards
We encourage members at all levels to display ethical behavior and adhere to high standards of professionalism at all times. Specifically:
- Avoid political or religious references that may infer a specific stand on the part of the NRWA. We are a non-profit group with no political or religious affiliations.
- Refrain from slurs, libelous or slanderous comments directed toward any group or individual.
- Personal disputes and/or disagreements should be carried out in private e-mails, not in a public forum or board.
