  • ISHLTConnect Code of Conduct

    We wanted to take the time to remind everyone that there are rules and restrictions for activity on ISHLTConnect. There have been several posts recently that have violated the Code of Conduct for our online community, many of which have been promoting the meetings and events of other societies. If you review the Code of Conduct you will see that the first item under Rules states that members are not permitted to “post messages about other organizations’ and institutions’ meetings, publications, programs or services on any discussion list, resource library entry, or other area where others might see it”.

    We STRONGLY encourage all members to review the Code of Conduct for further guidelines and restrictions for posts to ISHLTConnect.
